A friend from church has a mother who went through a horrendous accident. She's doing well now, but it was bad. My friend had made these quilt blocks some time ago for her mother, but had never got them made into a quilt. I volunteered. I added a small red sashing and then an osnaburg border around that. I did not want to do anything to take away from the beautiful piecing she had done on these blocks.
I quilted it very simply and added a red and off-white binding.
It is a striking quilt, and I'm sure her mom will love it.
She's also given me more squares to turn into a quilt for her sister who was involved in the same incident. I'll be working on that one soon. The sashing, backing and binding fabrics have already been chosen from the stash.
I also finished this sweet little ten minute block quilt. I like it so much I decided it should stay here.
It was a fun and fast quilt to make, all the fabrics came from the stash. I used the same fabric from the backing to make the binding. It all just seemed to go together so well. The somewhat wonky quilting is all free-motion-hoping-for-the-best (my usual mode of quilting), or we could just say muddling!
If you could see and feel how soft and cuddly it is, you'd understand why I'm keeping it!
Another project in the works involves blocks cut with the Go! cutter using the signature die and the 3 1/2 inch triangle die.
There are plenty more of the units cut and waiting for me to put them together.
However my chair seems to be occupied at the moment.
How could I possibly disturb a sweet little kitty like that?
I hope you're enjoying this first week of October. We've had quite a bit of rain here, but I don't mind a bit.
Hugs and kisses,
