Here is number 7. I am so happy to have these all done. I committed to make six quilts for this ministry, and we even ended up with one more. Always good to give more!
My friend Sandy pieced this one. I did the borders, quilting and binding. She did a much better job than I. I'm still learning on the new machine.
I think one of those boys is going to love this quilt in spite of its lack of perfection.
As usual I had "help" with the project. Here is Lady, completely worn out helping me sew the binding on the quilt.
And here's a shot of the backing and binding. I added a strip of the squares from the front that were left over. Sandy had sewn these all into a long roll. I see more of them showing up in the future.
It is so good to have friends who take hold together with me to help. I've heard it said that if you have friends to fill the fingers of one hand (five), you are blessed. I am blessed. I've distanced myself from some people in the past year who claimed to be my friend, but were nowhere to be seen when I actually needed a friend. I don't think it's a great loss. I am so thankful for the friends I have who really ARE friends.
I hope you have real friends and that you are having a lovely day!
Hugs and kisses,
Oh, and by the way, I am posting today with the medium sized pictures. You should be able to click on any of them and enlarge. I think some people might have trouble with the larger photos loading.
