And Yet Another One!


Sometimes I doubt my sanity. There are 1560 little pieces (2"x 3 1/2") in this quilt top I just finished. Each piece is handled individually, so I know there are a bunch of them. I love the Batik colors and patterns and I collect them on a regular basis. This one is just for the fun of it, so I think I will take it to Florida and hand quilt it this coming Winter. My darling husband thinks we quilters are a bit unhinged. Who would take perfectly good fabric and chop it into pieces, only to sew them back together again? But, I think his golfing is a bit goofy. Why chase that little ball all over the course today and have nothing to show for it and then do it again in a day or two?

That is a major quilt project! I almost missed seeing you back. Love the comparison to golf. Your are quick. If you get a minute see my recent post about the quilt I received as a gift.

Ah, it reminds me of the quilts my mother-in-law used to make for us, may she rest in peace. I remember the day she turned over her quilting materials to her daughters, saying she couldn't do it any more. Very sad.

But very exciting to be making preparations for the marriage of grandchildren. My one and only grandson is not yet two, so I have a wait to experience the same.

Exciting to see your blog here though.
