I Thought

I really thought that this quilt was going to live here. But, tomorrow it will go to another home.  I KNOW that it is to go to a couple at our church.

As I had it on the frame quilting it, I heard that still, small voice.  And when I took the time to listen - I knew where it should go.
 
These scrappy quilts have been so much fun to make.  I know there are more in my future.

 
This is a shot of the backing with Lady, of course, "helping" me.  Hasn't she grown!
 
Mr. Muddling just asked me what I am going to make next.  He knows me too well!
 
What are you making next?
 
Hugs and kisses,

Hi, What kind of foot is that you are using on the binding ? and do you sew both sides of the binding by machine? Nice quilts and thinking leads to thoughts which enrich the giver and the receiver.

I'm finishing up some of my UFO's.

Wow, Elaine, that's a beauty - and I'm comforted to know that I'm not the only one that hears "voices" when I'm quilting!!

Whoop whoop!!

I can see why this a quilt you would like to keep. These scrappy ones look so good.
Yes, Lady is growing up!

Like you, sometimes when I make a quilt, it speaks to me and helps me to find a recipient. Thank goodness! Otherwise, I would live in a home padded with quilts.

That couple at church will be thrilled! It turned out just beautiful and I love the meander quilting.
I now pass the crown to you- you are new queen of the churn dash block ;-)
