Well, I hadn't planned on it, but this weekend I dove into a partially completed quilt block project that a colleague at work sent my way when she was downsizing. She was parting with all of her quilting patterns, scraps and partially completed quilts. What a score!
I was in the mood to sew but wasn't necessarily wanting to work on my Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll so I thought I would get a start on cutting out a new baby quilt. Then I remembered this partially completed quilt project.
I decided I could do the applique and that would satisfy the sewing urge for the evening. Got that done and needed more. I should say that I had the house basically to myself since my daughter and husband were away at a conference all weekend and my son was home but plugged into his own computer with his own projects. Play time for Mom!
To make a long story short, I finished the quilt top that night, AND got it quilted and bound it the next night. It was a great weekend. I can face Mondays so much easier when I've accomplished something on the weekend - especially something fun and charitable.
And here is my latest baby quilt for one of the newest members of our congregation:
Thank you to my friend Lisa who had the vision to start this project, and for her generosity in finding it a home in my studio where it could be lovingly brought to life, thereby giving me such great joy.
