My brother in law's quilt is totally finished and on its way to him in the mail.
Don't you love this Jinny Beyer print on the back? I used this same fabric for the binding.
This is what's playing around on one of my design walls right now. I think this one will go to the Quilts of Compassion drive for tornado survivors. My plan right now (if I have a plan) is that this will be a child sized quilt. I'm just making it up as I go along. Having fun. You know.
But here's the exciting news. I got my new issue of Quiltmaker magazine in the mail today. Of course, it's exciting to see a Bonnie Hunter quilt on the cover.
But what made me scream (and startle Mr. Muddling with whom I was chatting at the time) was seeing the quilt I made for my sister. I had emailed a picture, they ask for pictures of quilts we make using their patterns, and they actually published mine. I am so excited, and yet so humbled at the same time to be included in a magazine with so many talented quilters. Wow.
I am so thankful that I fell into this joy of making quilts. I have so many in my head trying to get out all the time, and it is so much fun! I am grateful to have something that I enjoy doing and that I can do right here in my own home. That they so often bless people is just the icing on the cake! I know that a lot of you know exactly what I mean.
We've been having a lot of rain here. The rain barrels are full and running over, but all the growing things outside are soaking it all up. These pictures were all taken on Sunday before the rains began.
I hope there is good and exciting news in your world, too.
Hugs and kisses,
