Mr. Muddling and I have a couple at our church who have it in their hearts to start a boys' home for troubled boys. I have it in my heart to make quilts for them to put on the beds in that home. I have two very good friends who also quilt and when I told them about it, they want to make quilts, too. Don't you love that! This is one that Phyllis and I are starting - a simple string quilt in 8X10 rectangles which will form diamond shapes when put together. Or maybe we'll sash them. Still muddling.
Here's one I started a couple of night ago. I'm using the chisel die from the Go! cutter, along with the 3" hst die. It goes together really quickly. I'm using the shirting fabric that a friend gave me last year.
Last night I cut a lot of tumbler blocks with the Go. My other quilty friend, Sandy, said if I would cut them, she would make the quilt. Sounds like a good deal to me. I am so excited to be helping with the birth of a ministry that will be a blessing.
Here's a glimpse of what's going on out in the back yard this morning. I'll have to say it again, I just LOVE Spring!
This is the view out our back door. Not fancy, by any wild stretch of the imagination, but still green and growing and making me happy.
I hope that there's lots in your world that is making you happy, and that you are finding a way to be a blessing. It just makes life a lot better when you are more interested in giving than in getting.
Hugs and kisses and lots of love,
