Recap of the Past Week

It’s been a busy week – I had to take my dog to an eye specialist for her semi-annual checkup (she’s fine) and then take my mother to an eye specialist (she’ll be fine – one more visit in store for her).

Then I had my monthly meeting for Quilts of Valor.  Those meeting are always great fun and we get so much done.  I was able to take my finished top to show:
Modified from a Fons & Porter magazine design
Everybody liked how I used those leftover triangles from their snowball blocks, so I was relieved.  Several others showed finished tops or quilts:
Debbie's Finished Quilt

Pat's Persimmon Quilts Mystery #20
Pat's Persimmon Quilts Mystery #24
And then we had a Binding Blitz:
All wound up - multiple layers in this box!
We have several scrappy quilts waiting for their bindings, so we used 2.5 inch scraps and made miles and miles of bindings – enough for the next 25 or so quilts!  I tell you, these ladies are the best!

And as a coincidence, I have a small patriotic quilt being assembled in my sewing room.  These were fabrics passed down to me from a lady that passed away that was a great supporter of Wrap-Them-in-Love, so this quilt will go to that organization.  It is a child-sized lap quilt.

 I’ll be adding borders and getting this one quilted soon.
