And the result is a very simple, yet finished!, soft, soft quilt for the living room. A while ago, I saw a TV show about the couple who started fold bedding, and I love the long, simple lines, so that’s kind of what I had in mind on the quilting of this project. Finally, we can get rid of the fleece dog hair magnets we use as blankets! Since the quilting was less than enjoyable (till the walking foot), I think I’ll spend more time on the piecing step next time. It’s amazing what you can do with fabric. Like this table runner. Gorgeous.
My recent pet project has been attempting to improve my gas mileage. With the brakes out on the bug (again), I’m back to driving our newer but less fuel efficient car. So, I’m moving comparatively super slow (well, 60ish) on the highway, and complaining about E’s driving, but it has paid off: 24 more miles on the tank than usual. That’s like a free gallon. And now E is on board, too—he said ‘I can make it all the way to work driving under 1500rpms!’ His car has a gas mileage readout on the dash, so it’s fun to see how high you can get it! We’re dorks. Sorry!
