My goal was to get my newest grandson his quilt made. He's 8 and his mommy married my son last July 4th. He has autism so his mommy wanted the puzzle quilt.
I also was commissioned to make a baby quilt. You know everybody wants a handmade till they find out how much it will cost. Since it was a co worker/friend of my hubby I gave her a break. I also told her the prices of fabric at quilt shops verses department store. If course she like something at the department store and I said hold it up if you can see through it like tissue paper, stay away from it. Well she bought it and i was pleasantly surprised at the quality. Yes better than I thought.
Several years ago I met a wonderful lady, so talented and nice. Never met a nicer woman. She came to a retreat that I host. We became good friends. She was a member of a local quilt club but I'm not. BUT I do attend their retreats. If course I love retreats. Well this sweet woman had a severe stroke after one of these retreats and is in nursing home. She's unmarried and no children. Her family had an estate auction to help pay for her nursing care. I purchased a small tub with fabric and a quilt started in it. So I took this also so I could finally finish it.
Add you can tell I'm trying to clean up some UFO's so the next one is a peacock panel I've had for a couple years. Out collecting those row by row experience rows I saw a package of fabrics I thought would work with this panel. It had a plain blue and a piece with the peacock feathers and some floral and a stripe. So I bought it. I didn't use the floral and I had to bum a bit of jade, but here it is
Hmm just not sure what I'm going to do with this one.
Then last but not least, I got one of Quilts Valor finished.
See I have been doing something. So till next time.
