Fiesta!

I sewed all day today, in between interruptions that is! I've been so busy playing with squares since I got home from California, that I felt like I hadn't gotten anything "real" done in the sewing room. This past weekend I decided to correct that, and assembled a quilt center and a baby quilt top. Today I decided to tackle assembling Easy Street. The blocks have been done for months, but I had been putting it off. Today was the day I bit the bullet and went for it, and  I did manage to get the center together.


Once it was coming together I decided it was looking very Mexican, and I kept thinking Fiesta! That wasn't in my head when I chose the colors, but pretty frequently quilts don't come out just how you picture them. Now I have five quilts waiting for borders. I thought I had borders chosen for Easy Street, but now I am rethinking that. I may go back to the wild print I had originally chosen, and ditch the multiple borders I was considering.

I won't have near as much sewing time tomorrow as I had originally thought I would. I've got two kids needing haircuts, so I'll have to exchange my sewing shears for barber shears. I started laundry today, but got so busy with Easy Street I didn't finish. I'll need to be busy with those things tomorrow, and if I sew at all, I'm not sure what I'll work on. Maybe a border, maybe I'll sew some more squares ;-)

Your choice of name, " Fiesta,"is just perfect for the very festive quilt top! Congrats on getting the center all together, it is well worth it!
