Day 2 Quilt-a-thon Progress

My Quilt-a-thon was a success for me.

I finished the top of Walkin' The Line this morning. I love how it looks. DH and I have decided the quilt will be the focal point of our master bedroom. It may hang on the wall or be draped over the end of the bed. We will choose a brown from the quilt for the wall color. We had thought about painting the walls blue, but a friend told me they painted their bedroom walls blue and the room feels "cold" in the winter. I currently have blue paint test areas in the room and agree with her.

I also worked on the 9-patches I'm making from the galoshes fabric. I have the rows for 25 of them sewn. I still don't know what I'm going to do with them when they are done. I'm just sewing them for fun right now.

Tomorrow I have to attend a sales meeting. This is the first time in four months I have been involved in an office activity. I have been working at home the last few weeks which has worked out well. I am anxious about going to the meeting. I am glad DH will be there. I'm not sure I could handle it without him being there. It will be an interesting day to say the least.

Have a great week!
Sweet P

Love your colors. I'm sure you'll do fine at the meeting, from following your blogs, I would think that you would be an asset to any company.
