Mad About Plaid

Car Quilt
To prepare for our guild's Show N Tell last night, I worked on the final part of hand sewing the binding yesterday afternoon.  I had a little extra unscheduled time since school's closed early with the threat of stormy weather.  I gave myself permission to leave work early as well and supervised as my teens did several loads of laundry to prepare for a retreat this weekend.

Then, we had to cancel the guild meeting (the mayor closed City Hall, which is our guild's meeting place), so I had the gift of even more unscheduled time.  I could get used to this!  Taxes are now ready to be mailed and I was able to vacuum the studio.

I love that thrill of crossing a finish line!  It's nice to know this little quilt is ready to be used.  It was made from 6 or 7 thrift store men's shirts.  There's a previous post here.
And also here (with a link to the pattern)

So my plan is for this one to ride in the car and be ready for action.  An impromptu picnic, a cool evening, whatever ....  

Although I don't consider myself to be a big fan of plaid, I really like this pattern and all the fabrics in it.   I think I might start being mad about plaid!

No tool shed photos today.  Hoping to paint some trim and have it ready to attach tomorrow.

Enjoy your day!
