More Than The Usual Quilt Hate

Seriously, it was just too busy.  I had to change the design of B2's quilt.  I was nearly half way done with Phase One, but it wasn't getting any easier to look at.  So I have a new design. And my brain is sighing in relief. 
Now I can't be held responsible for an overstimulated nephew.

Lookin' Good

I've started cutting B2's fabric and it looks great together.  I always have my moments of doubt, but this time the fabric is not involved in the doubts.
The doubts this time are related to the actual layout. Not to give anything away, but this is really the first quilt that I consider to have come entirely from my brain; as opposed to inspired by something.  I'm beginning to think my brain is a strange place.  Nathan diplomatically stated that the things I make have some personality.  That's one way to put it.  Here's hoping B2 and the quilt get along, personality wise.

Just a Little Update

BabeO's quilt is really coming along.  I'd guess that I'm nearly half way done with the quilting.  Nathan and I have been watching the extended editions of Lord of the Rings, which is helping in the quilting time department.  AND quilting is keeping me awake, I even made it through Helm's Deep.  Don't misunderstand, I love LOTR, I even read the book before the movies, but something about Helm's Deep gets me every time.  Which I'm pretty sure baffles and amuses Nathan, seeing as I manage to fall asleep during a battle scene.  I had totally never seen Faramir question them about their route and threaten Gollum!  I'm glad that scene exists, it helps to redeem Faramir after Peter Jackson ruined him.  It bugs me to no end when a good character is maligned in a movie just to add some drama.  I'm annoyed just thinking of it. 
Back to sewing... we are contemplating a road trip, in which case I am contemplating one of those back of the seat car organizers for cars, fairies, books, Friend magazines and the like.  I'm also thinking about something else, but it's more exciting than the car organizer so you'll have to wait.  Potentially more exciting that is, I love me some good organizing.
