Further proof…

That I should NOT be quilting when tired:

I sewed myself right to the quilt.  My husband had to come unpick me (after taking a photo…a true bloggers husband) because I couldn’t unpick myself with my left hand.
P.S.  Now don’t you go being all jealous of my sexy quilting gloves…they are my favorite.

Off Track….literally

Yes….this is my second quilt top in these colors in two weeks, but I really love these colors together!!!   This top is from a pattern/quilt I made for the Robert Kaufman booth at market.   My husband named it Off Track. 
Only after basting half of it did I finally notice that it really is off track See?
How in the heck did I miss that???!!!! Luckily the “oops” block was in the bottom row so it was an easy unpick…but still worth a grumble and rolling of the eyes by yours truly.

A Better Look

Here is a very wrinkly closer look at the Skipping Squares quilt for those of you that asked:

The fabrics are from the Denyse Schmidt collection now at Joann’s.  The only other fabrics I added are the grey and white polka dot, the Sherbet Pips red with tiny white squares (my favorite red basic to date), and the bright blue and white polka dot. 

I’ve heard a lot of positive and plenty of negative about this collection…but I really love it.  I don’t love every single print…but I never love ever single print in a collection.
