Sunday This and That

Good morning! Hubby is finally home from China safe and sound. And soundly sleeping at the moment. I finished quilting a top for my guild’s Comfort Quilts group this weekend. These ho to the local women’s shelter.  

    
 
Believe it or not, that backing is lavender! Cameras are funny things, especially when you are taking pictures of a solid color. It wants to make it white. 

I forgot to show one more quilt from the show that I loved. These heroes were about a half inch. 

    
 
And here is my slow stitching pike for today. 

 
I’m going to try to mend that white sweater on top. I washed it once and this happened. 

 
Grrrrr! After that, and only after, I will sew some hexies for Brinton Hall. My progress has been pitifully slow since getting back from our trip. I just don’t watch TV when hubby is gone. 

Time to get ready for church. Have a great day!

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    The top quilt is simply lovely. I’m sure it will bring tears to the eyes of the lucky woman who receives it. It might be the only bright spot in her life at the moment. I’m glad you included close ups of the second quilt. It’s fabulous!! And lastly, be sure to let us know if you were successful in repairing the sweater. (I hate it when that happens!)

  2. What a beautiful quilt and for such a worthy cause. Sure to bring happiness to someone very special in need of a quilty hug.

    Love your quilt. I think I have some fabric that would be perfect to make one too! The quilting is also lovely.

    Love the red, white & blue hexie quilt! Makes me want to switch from 30’s retro fabrics and make one of those. I saved the pictures to my Pinterest account.

    Love that hexie quilt … just love the fabrics, the fussy cutting, and the design of the quilt. Just not sure that I could work with such small hexies.

    I really like the green and purple quilt. Looks like it would be a perfect pattern for donating quilts. Could you share the approximate size of the finished quilt or the quilt blocks themselves? Thank you!
