I took the rectangles from this post and added some black squares (yes Di, my go to color lol) and came up with this:
Yes, it is upside down. Blogger thinks it's fun to flip photos every once in awhile.
As you can tell I didn't plan the placement of colors. I just grabbed and sewed. This top is long enough at 60" for a lap quilt but it is only 36" wide so it will need some side borders and probably a narrow top and bottom border too. Still working on a plan for the borders.
Well, I'm back to work tonight. Booooo!!! Doc says the shoulder is good to go even though it still hurts. He says the pain will ease over time and I won't hurt it by going back now. More Booooo. Since I am a pro at this shoulder stuff I know the pain will ease up in a few weeks. It will take a year or more to completely heal. I just don't want to go back to work :( I would rather stay home and quilt but you have to do what you have to do.
Things around our house will be weird for a bit though. I normally work 5pm-1:30 am. While I was out they decided to put me on third shift when I return so now I work 10:30 pm-7 am. Not sure when I will fit everything in or where I will find some quilting time but I'm sure I will find a new routine. Should be interesting...
