|Yes, I see the 4-patch turned the wrong way, but I didn't see it until it was being quilted!|
...now you don't--almost.
|How did my Mother's hand get in this picture?|
This little quilt went off to my dear friend, Carole, who is undergoing chemo. It is named "Heaven Can Wait"! It is a variation on the Stairway to Heaven pattern. I just changed the name and the value placement. It goes to Carole with lots of prayers for successful treatment. I was waiting until she received it before posting.
Not much else happening here in the way of quilting.
I have continued to stitch up little things that just hang around. When there are lots of HSTs left in my "parts" bowl (do you have one of those containers?) it is easy to put together some of these...
...when you don't have time to get involved in a big project.
And then I found enough R/W/B ones to make some more hangy things to go with one of my little mini quilts.
So many patriotic quilted things decorating the house now. I've shown most of them at one time or another, but maybe I will have to do a R/W/B post soon.
I have a niece getting married next week. Unlike some of you who make quilts for your nieces' and nephews' weddings, graduations, babies, etc., I have no such tradition, but I admire those of you who do. I have 11 nieces and 10 nephews, besides my own two girls and two boys. Half of them are married or engaged. All but two have graduated from high school, half of them have graduated from college, about half of those have gone on to complete advanced degrees, and between them all I think they have 26 children, so far. I don't have that much quilting time!! So for this niece, who has been very close to my Mom, I have been making a few pineapple ornaments from my Mom's quilt scraps. This is four of the six she will be receiving.
I hope they will mean something to her. I think they will.
DD#1 flew in from NH on Saturday. I look forward to a week with her here!
Until next time,
