You KNOW that's a joke, right? There's nothing good about having a cold! However, in my never-ending quest to redeem the bad things that seem to happen to us all, I spent my weekend cooped up with a cold - - - sewing. I had bought a jelly roll of "Glow" by Gudrun Eria fabrics a while back, and though I had also bought a pattern to use with the jelly roll, I decided I'd better not get too ambitious. So I stuck with the very easy rail fence. I just added in a one inch strip of solid brown in each block and also as the first thin border. The outer border is a Jinny Beyer print.
Here it is outside on the patio with the sunlight playing off the fabrics. It seems a happy quilt to me and that is always good.
The backing is this Jinny Beyer print.
And my very favorite shot of any quilt - the morning sunlight showing off the freshly washed cuddliness of it.
I also have started using up my nine patches that I have been using as leader/enders. This will eventually be Dancing Nine Patch, a free pattern from Bonnie Hunter. I like accumulating a pile of units to use in another quilt with very little extra effort.
Somehow I had the foresight to make an applesauce cake before the cold hit full force. Thank God! It was necessary. Really. Cake is good for what ails you, don't you know?
I hope you are having a perfectly WELL week! Because not being well is just no fun. Me? I'm thankful to be feeling better!
Hugs and kisses,
