And a nicely busy day it is. First, a snippet from last eve’s (local) quilt gathering……………….
The above 3 quilts are destined to be given to the graduates who attend a local rural church. It’s the custom for many of our area’s churches to gift each of the year’s high school graduates with a lap sized quilt……such a nice tradition! Anita (2 quilts on left) and Ginny (on right) both attend the same church and the 2 on the left will go to a set of twins. Nice.
Ginny is one of our “winter snowbirds” and recently returned from Arizona. She is a busy gal and it’s always fun to see what going on in that corner of the world.
JoAnn (our teacher) is, once again, busily piecing and completed a couple more tops that will be baby quilts.
Sheri put together this wonderful top in anticipation of another baby quilt needed. Hmmmmm…..it does seem that I might see a trend here, don’t you??
Twyla (above) had a request for a little Bluebird wall quilt so her customer will have a choice. Then she “whipped up” 6 vests, with painted on logo, for the local arts group and, finally, she finished a UFO (UnFinished Object)….a friendship quilt that we had done for her many years ago. It really feels good to finish those projects!!! AND she quilted it herself!!!!!!
Now, to shift gears…..majorly! Yes, that is the huge dumpster that is taking away the garage remains!!!
The photo on the right will be how things remain for a while as the next step is concrete (tomorrow??) and that needs to “cure” for a couple of weeks.
After a quick, and early, trek to town for a haircut, I “sandwiched” a client’s queen sized quilt that is going to be gifted to her MIL.
I think I will use the print on the purple triangle as inspiration for the quilting motif. It will be an all-over, E2E (edge to edge) quilting and that will work well without overwhelming all the beautiful florals in the piecing.

I think that I’ve gone on for long enough and must get the bed sheets off the lines and in the house. Just about time for lunch! Have an awesome day……it’s already 65F and sunny here…….pure gorgeousness!!!!! Quilt guild in LaCrosse (WI) tonight. Til next time…….thanks so much for stopping by……………………
