Illusion of Colors Quilt, #172
This was the second of two designs I made using Uppercase Fabrics and designs from artist Kevin Umaña, who now lives in New York City. I first wrote about him when we started our collaboration, and he was a delight to work with and has great punchy graphic designs that translate well to quilts.
I had this pinned up and awaiting quilting for the longest time. You all know that my shoulder has been giving me trouble (wah wah wah) and last week when I went for a 3-month check-up, the doctor said don’t do anything that hurts. Well…sleep hurts. Getting dressed hurts. Sitting quietly can hurt. And then I thought if I can’t do anything that hurts, I may as well suspend myself in green Jello or something. Or, since everything hurts, I’m going to quilt. That night, I finished off Kevin’s great design.
Of course, sitting quietly, sewing on the label hurt my shoulder. (eye roll) So I apply a lot of this:
Brenda thinks I should get a real ice pack, but this seems to work okay. I’m on my second one. And yes, I’m still going through doctor hoops, hoping one day to do stuff without hurting too much. But I will keep quilting, because if I can’t quilt, what can I do? (No need to supply answers).
I’m just happy to have finished up Kevin’s quilt. I’m mailing off to him as a thank you for sharing his designs.
