    benefits of asthma

    I have been stuck inside for three solid days, due to my inability to breath with the current air quality in the national capital region. HOWEVER, all was not lost! Saturday and today I finished piecing a top for my niece's first child, due in late November. the pattern is A Quick Trip Around the World by Eleanor Burns, and fabric by Monaluna. I machine pieced using my fabulous Elna Supermatic, but will hand quilt with a simple crosshatch. I am using Fairfield Nature-Fil bamboo batting - I love the way it quilts.

    We just finished my sewing/guest room last fall, and this is the third quilt to come out of it. I tried some new techniques with this one, thanks to the wonderful folks on this board! I basted using a tailors baste, which was easy and quick, once I got the hang on it. I also tapped the backing to the floor to put the sandwich together - tough on the knees, but overall easier then doing it on my cutting table!

    Hopefully I will be able to get the pictures to load...Click image for larger version.

    Your quilt is great, the asthma not so great. The air quality has been bad for me too but thankfully the cooler weather has come here. Not a lot cooler but I'll take 80's over the 90's any day.

    I have been quilting away too. I also can't breathe in this weather so I am inside praying the air keeps on working or I will have to go to a hotel. I have been doing the Craftsy BOM and I just got it on Wednesday and I have done 7 months of blocks - 14. It is a terrific free program. And fun. I love your quilt and your wonderful use of time!
