Sometimes, you just want to lay around in the sunshine and be glad it's stopped raining.
We've had a lot of rain here. None in our house, thank God, but plenty of people have had that awful experience. Our patio got a bit of water, but that's no biggie. It's gone now.
I pulled a bunch of 2 1/2" strips Tuesday night and started sewing them into units of four and then sub-cut them into squares.
Before long they turned into this. Mr. Muddling asked me to make a quilt for a little girl on the way to a niece of his coworker and this is it. I got it all sewn together and quilted. Then I took it into the cutting room (aka, the dining room) and trimmed it, never bothering to look at the back until I took it back to the sewing room to sew the binding on it.
Big mistake. Now there is lots of ripping to be done and re-quilting before it will be ready for that binding.
I am working on that, but in the meantime I thought I would start putting these houses onto blocks. I've used the Go! cutter to cut these and ironed them on to 10 inch squares with Heat n Bond Lite. Of course, I still have to sew all around them. I may have bitten off a little more than I want this time, but we'll see.
I had a very sweet email from the Volunteer Team Leader at our local airport USO this week. They only have two of our quilts left and she wondered if we could make more for them. Of course we can.
I had this one done except for the binding, and now that is done. I have more ideas and will try to get more made in a hurry. It helps that I have some components done and ready to put into new quilts.
A closer look at some of the fun in this one. I like to think of a soldier getting a smile from some of these. It makes me happy!
It is a beautiful day here after all that rain. Mr. Muddling has been out mowing the lawn and making everything look wonderful again. He's a blessing to me!
I hope you are having a weekend that makes you happy. There are always things for which to be thankful, aren't there?
Hugs and kisses,
