This is one of the little girls we kept for nearly a week. The ones for whom the I Spy quilt in the last post was for. The ones who had never spent a night away from their parents. The ones who are 4 and 2. The ones obsessed just a little with princesses. Here is the senior one's princess hair.
Here is my tumbler quilt. I am putting the binding on. I have started doing every part of the binding sewing by machine. I don't think I got a picture of the whole quilt. It has a bazillion tumblers (actually, 13,600, some of which are pieced).
This is the hand quilting on my Mennonite Mosaic quilt. It would get finished faster if I actually worked on it.
Occasionally, I get an itch to sew something quick and with different fabrics than my usual go-tos. How many sad stories start with, "When I was at the quilt shop...?" This one isn't sad. I bought a mini charm pack (2-1/2" squares) of a line of reds and taupes.
Here is what I made from them. It now has a border of one of the reds (with enough of same for binding!)...this is 35" long, I think.
Thus ends my blog post for today. I hope your day is a blessed one. Look for the silver lining!
