Things have been a balancing act around here since we arrived home. We had one of those life events happen with the passing of Jeffrey’s extremely sweet, very small, giggling 92-year old Norwegian grandmother G.G. You crafty ladies would have appreciated this domestic arts diva. She lived her whole life in her own home.
I was pretty thrilled this morning to take a breather and shake out this long forgotten baby quilt. I put it up on the design wall for some quilting contemplation. I have a few ideas and am even hoping to tap into some of the hand quilting knowledge you all provided on this blog and that I can’t find for the life of me.
I’m even more thrilled that I get some time to go sew this Saturday with the lovely ladies of the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild. Of course I have to go.
I’ll quilt this up and help Noelle out with her school auction quilt.
There’s a lot I like about this quilt. I like that the focuses in it are made with left overs from some Bee Blocks made from my own fabric stash and a ton of random neutral fabrics. It has texture with a mix of Kona, linen and flannel. I think the design layout worked well too.
There’s some things that I also would change and those I won’t point out cause that would get me nowhere now would it?
I’m still working on making time for a Value Quilt A-long and think I picked some dates for classes.
Now just send me some sun…I’m in need.
