There were only two of us there yesterday, so we had lots of room to spread out.
Celia stopped by and picked up three of our Hope Quilts that I quilted this week. She took them home to work on binding them for me. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
I decided that it really was okay for me to work on a quilt for me. So I made scrappy 9 patches, and watched a small bright quilt top form on the floor. Since I had altered the pattern and decided to make the quilt larger, I would cut and sew, and reevaluate how many more blocks I would need.
Earlier this week one of my customers brought me these:
Isn't this a bright and cute little quilt! It will cheer up a small child in no time at all! And the fabric that I was working with yesterday will make a great scrappy binding for it.
Judy also brought me this little bag of scraps. A majority of it is cut down to 2 1/2 inch strips. Which is great because I found a quilt pattern on Bonnie Hunters sight that I see myself making next year for Iowa Comfort. It is called Strip Twisting. I think I am going to make several of these quilts next year for the center. It will be a fast and efficient way to use up some of the stock pile of strips that I have.
So thank you Judy for the donation of the quilt, and the strips!
I am heading out to farmers market with my mother in a few minutes. Then later today I am going to head over to the cemetery to document a few more graves.
I will be back to work on Iowa Comfort quilts on Monday!
Have a great week end everyone!
