The Grandkids are here this weekend, well 2 of the 3 are. Maybe I should get adjusted to just having 2. My son is getting a divorce and the oldest child is not his. The mother said she would never take him away from us but I feel as tho she is. I know I know I am just feeling sorry for myself. There is so much to this story, but anyone who reads this just pray for that little boy, he is 11 and my son has been the Dad for almost 10 years now. I am sure he (grandson) is very confused.
OK so I have dedicated today for the soldiers. My local quilt club gives out quilts to our local service members, so I thought today would be the perfect day to make a few quilts for that purpose. Here are 2 that I put together. This first one was from swapped blocks that I have had now over a year. I thought I had lost them then one day, 'poof ' there were here. I have more of these blocks and thought I would put them altogether but........the mind takes over and I guess I have decided to use them in 4 different quilts. All the pieced blocks (Friendship Links) were made by the same swapper, Karen, so the blues on the diagonal from bottom left to top right are the same and the reds going from top left to bottom right are the same. Thought this basic 9-patch setting was nice and I know it was easy. I see quilting big feather hearts in the red squares. Maybe I should just do feather circles since some guys might think it too sissy if it has big hearts. Hmmm any thoughts?
This next top took a little more time. I used another one of Karens Friendship Links block for the center and went out from there. I do a lot of swaps with what
