Open clear spaces do not last long around here. I decided to use the space to lay out the two sides of the vintage spin quilt--from Kathy Doughty's Adding Layers book. I had decided to make a "Pretty Weird" quilt where I would have pretty vintage spin blocks on one side and weird vintage spin blocks on the reverse side. I separated the two sides last night, and it looks like the division is more between dark warm and light cool colors.
I didn't settle on a final layout because I discovered I needed four more blocks. This required pulling fabric from formerly neat piles to find interesting pairs of fabric. I will also have to sew the circles into the centers using Judy Dale's 6 minute circle method (the same used to insert owl eyes, for example). Maybe by the time I get that all done, I can hire the feline expertise to arrange the blocks properly.
