Madison Elizabeth's Quilt.

I sewed for 7 1/2 hours today...piecing the improv star blocks...making the top...quilting the serpentine stitching with the walking foot. This is Madison's quilt. I do love it!
Closer look at the wavy quilting. 

It felt good to sit and sew for hours today. I haven't had much spare time of late. Each night this past week I got home late, took my beloved hot bath and went to bed.  I needed to make headway with creativity and I did! 

Tomorrow will be more sewing.  First thing I must do is do alterations on Jill's dress for her son, Alan's wedding in a few weeks. I have to take the lace bodice dump at the shoulders, shouldn't be a difficult job, just a bit time consuming. 
I really want to get a 16" x 16" piece done for the Quilt Alliance annual challenge. Hoping tomorrow I get inspired to get it done. 
Of course I have many, many, many UFO 's awaiting my hand and any one of them might find their way to the machine!

I have learned:

     1.  "Girls".  A very well written show. Like. 
      2.  CT scan didn't confirm diverticulitis diagnosis but did detect a possible 3 cm mass in my colon. 
           Great. Not really. Colonoscopy scheduled for Friday.  Prayers welcome my friends. 
      3.  Dave & Melissa will marry July 12. Good. 
      4.  I. Want. To. Go. To. NYC. Sooner. Than. Later.
