I think this one edged over a little into 2016, but even a lot of the binding was put on in 2015, so I'm going to put it in last year's tally. I had thought this one would go to the USO here at our local airport, but my plans were changed, and I am always glad to get that little push as to where a quilt is to go. This one will be going to a missionary couple our church supports.
They will be visiting with us this month, and they will have a little surprise to take back with them!
The backing is this nice warm flannel, and with the brown and white angled stripe, it has a more masculine side as well as the bright colorful side. I hope they like it as much as I do.
Here's my accomplishment picture for 2015: 34 quilts completed. Each and every one of them make me smile, and that's a good thing!
The quarter square stars quilt is loaded and the quilting has started. Maybe it will get finished tomorrow.
I've got the pieces cut out for a pastel and white quilt my sister asked me to make for her sister in law who recently lost her husband, the love of her life.
Here are the first couple of blocks completed.
We had such a good visit with Mary, but it ended all too quickly! She's about to make some cookies here. (My friend Margaret made this apron for me several years ago, and Mary wanted to look special while she cooked. Isn't it pretty!) We needed more cookies. I had mailed lots to family already, but we like to give some to our neighbors, too. And then, some were consumed by us. Hey, we had to be sure they were good!
I have no idea what Dinah is trying to say, but I do know that's a funny face!
Isn't it good to laugh! I try to do a lot of it every day. You know the Bible says that laughter doeth good like a medicine!
Hugs and kisses,
