The Nine-Patch and Fence Rails for the USO is complete and (HALLELUJAH!!!) after a run through the washer and dryer, the blocks I had so much trouble with on the sides are not badly noticeable at all.
Here is a closer look.
The backing is a pale blue tone on tone.
I've had an interesting time working on this kite block quilt. I had the blocks on the design wall, when Miss Dinah decided to walk behind it and knock it over. I've circled her in the picture. She came back to survey her handiwork.
After going through lots of design changes,
I finally got it put together.
Here it is outside this morning. I just finished quilting it and getting the binding sewn on last night.
The backing is a really soft and wonderful turquoise flannel. It is a bright, happy, and I think beautiful quilt for our lovely pastor. Turquoise is her favorite color. I think she will enjoy it!
I got a fat quarter stack of bright flannels from Connecting Threads and decided to cut them into tumblers. I should have bought two packs. But. I just added in more fabrics from the stash and put them up on the design wall. I've now started webbing them together. I don't know if I'll get them totally put together, but I need to get them down off those walls. I have another one to make for my sister Sue's sister in law as a comfort to her in the loss of her best friend, her husband to cancer recently. Sue and her husband will be here for Thanksgiving, so I'd better get going!
I know I've been remiss in my posting. I expect to do better.
I do hope you are keeping busy doing things that make you happy!
Hugs and kisses,
