Collection Complete?....Perhaps not...
I'm not sure we're done collecting yet; it's certainly possible a few more could be added.
music quilt. In fact, I think she started collecting these before the music quilt was finished.
Update: Within hours of this post, we'd added three more fabrics. At this rate, piecing a backing from leftovers should be very do-able.
With her going off to the university in a few weeks, I need to get going on this. Since she's running off to one of New Mexico's lakes with her boyfriend's family later today, I hope to get some cutting and piecing accomplished.
Weather report: Over the course of three days we received 2/10 of an inch of rain. Very, very welcome--and most of us are hoping for more. One of my [now somewhat envied] friends said it rained for over an hour at her house (about ten miles from mine).
Normally we have hours of fireworks in our town; we have a couple of fireworks factories. This year the city has said they will strictly enforce fireworks bans. We'll see. I may still need to fall asleep with ear plugs this evening.
