Grey Quilt

Well, I did it.  After putting it off for quite a few months, I signed up to substitute teach.  I decided that it wouldn't hurt to make some money for my family.  And if I hope to ever get a job teaching again, I'll need to be in schools where people can see me and get to know who I am.  Because, if there is one thing in life I have learned, it's not what you know, it's who you know.


Needless to say, I am exhausted after 2 weeks of subbing and I haven't had much time to blog.  I've spent the last 2 weeks subbing and trying to finish my brothers birthday quilt.  We spent the weekend in San Diego with him to celebrate.  But, instead of having a finished quilt to give him, I spent quite a few hours pinning and sewing.  I did get it done on Sunday though, just in time for his birthday.



I am pretty happy with the result.  The colors go great in their house as well.  It's definitely very random and one of a kind.  I wanted a very un-patterned and un-planned look for the quilt - I think I achieved that.  Hopefully it is a successful look.

  3. Jeran - I don't normally comment on your blog, but I read it regularly (and I work with Linda)....I just wanted to say I LOVE your quilt. My mom is an avid quilter and I know how much time and energy you must have put into it. Marianne
