I am making progress on the Watermelon quilt !
What you see here is the first 2 rows before I started the daily hour.
I have been working on blocks so far, the big blocks, and have finished 3 that were in different stages of completion.
I have worked on the blocks 3 hours so far, and am in fact looking forward to do more. A daily hour is a good approach on any project !
Hmmm - my mind thought I had finished more blocks - wishful thinking ;-)
Now I lack the outer part of 2 of the big blocks and many of the small ones.
My plan is to finish one row at a time.
The day before yesterday our very good friend DD1's kitten came to spend the night. She was stressed and tired from having another kitten visiting over night in her home, and she was obviously uncomfortable - tired but restless, possibly cold - and with a cold nose.
After a meal she jumped up on my sewing table and tried to find a good resting position.
An idea came to mind, and when I covered her with DD2's quilt she rested well and slept under it for 1,5 hours. She usually does not like to have anything over herself. She must have been cold.
After a 1,5 hours she was on top of the quilt, sleeping more. In fact she slept under and on the quilt for hours and DD2 now treasure her quilt as a kitten quilt :-)
I hope to show you some more Watermelon quilt photos before long !
The last I heard on the book that will have the original quilt, the Starboat quilt, in it, is that it is delayed and will be published in 2007. I attended a class with Rie Norum, one of the two authors, in May this year. The book will be in Norwegian.
