Scott and I traveled today. We went to a funeral for the Mom of his friend Bob. Bob and Jen are the sweetest couple. Many years ago Jen asked about a quilt for their house. I gave her this one. I think she has had it on display ever since. It made my heart sing today to see it in her dining room. It was a long day. It rained, hailed and even snowed on us today. We traveled the crazy road home during Friday night traffic. I am such a wimp about traffic. I thought I would accomplish a great amount upon arriving home, but no! I am one tired chick! So I will show you some of what I was working on prior to today. This is once again a secret project…
I do need to put the rest of the binding on the star quilt and tack down the sleeve. I will show it for the first time at a Ladies Tea tomorrow and sell tickets for chances. I will try to remember to take some pictures at the Tea and share them.
There was a box of fabric for me when I arrived home. This beautiful stack is called Amethyst and is from Exclusively Quilters. I will cut and stitch and assemble it into a quilt. This one I can share as the process occurs.There was also some white fabric in the box to go with the batiks you may notice from an earlier picture. These need to become a nice large quilt too!
Just in case you thought I was slacking or getting bored (which I do not do, Mom always said she could find a job for me if I was bored so I don’t let that happen) I am part of a group at Bolts in the Bathtub that is planning to start a group to make 2 blocks a month from The Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt. I think I will be picking the first 2 blocks, and I have. I can’t share which ones I pick until late March, but this should be fun!
Ok, gotta go get that binding finished up!
Blog at you later,
