Another Cooperative Quilt for the USO

My friend Sandy pieced this jelly roll race and I quilted and bound it.
White dots on red for the binding,
and happy red pinata fabric for the backing (thank you, Deb!).
Buddy has approved the finished, crinkly, freshly washed and dried product. It and several more will soon be on their way to our local airport USO lounge.
I finally finished the Christmas Dancing Nine Patch top. I sewed that last border on with my vintage Singer 301. Such a sweet machine! This top is pressed and waiting for me to get the backing fabric sewn together. It is a big one!
Winter got here last week and wreaked havoc on our outdoor plants and shrubs. This was the pink angel trumpet. We'll see if it survives. I know we're not through with Winter yet. 

This is a close up of Marilyn from the above picture. She is the lone chicken left, and has decided that she will start gifting me with eggs again! We got three last week. What a lovely surprise in the midst of all the weather destruction!

I do hope you are all having happy, happy surprises, too. It helps, doesn't it?

Hugs and kisses,

Hmmm, maybe Marilyn would prefer to live in the north where the temps are cooler LOL? Another beautiful quilt!!!

What an awesome quilt. I hope you stay warm. I sure do dread winter and the snow.

I love jelly roll quilts. Red print and binding was perfect for this one. A nice patriotic touch.
Three eggs! You rock, Marilyn!

The quilt looks great. Such an effective way to use a jelly roll. Great work together!
Sad about your tree. Hope it survives. We have the opposite at the moment with keeping our garden alive in the heat.
