I made two more golden chickens today. These are speeding to the right.
I also decided to start making Amish nine patches. When I first started quilting, I was so inspired by Amish quilts that I exclusively used solids. As you may have noticed, I now almost exclusively use prints. I should also remind the youngsters out there, that in the late 70s, the choice of prints was quite limited. There were a few years when my local quilt store only had one bolt of yellow and just a few greens. However, in the 80s, there was quite a bounty of taupe.
I had stored away the solid fabrics back in Virginia, so they were out of sight and out of mind. But now they up and out, and tripping me as I make my way across the apartment. To reduce the tripping hazard, I've decided to make Amish nine patches until I'm inspired to make something.
And yes, Molly continues her adventures. In Virginia, she would climb the design wall and nap on top of the fabric shelving. Here, she scales the one fabric shelf, and settles down on top. Unfortunately, Oregon staff are incredibly lazy and have not made an easy way down from this perch. So Molly has to call me to come so she can jump on my shoulders and use me as her personal step stool. Here she wants me to quit taking her picture and help her down.
