I was able to finish quilting three kids quilts this weekend and start on a third. What joy it was to have three days with nothing to do and no place to go. First up is the easiest – the one I don’t have to trim or bind – that’s for Project Linus here locally. Someone from their group made this top and I loved the fabrics. Very traditional, like being wrapped in Grandma’s hug, so I quilted it with Hearts Surfing. I should have taken a detail shot of the inspirational sayings, but it’s already been delivered so it’s too late now.
Then I did two for Wrap-a-Smile. These tops are from the stack that was made by Beth in NJ. Beth has lots of cute novelty patches, so I tend to pick one or two for my theme and choose the quilting design from them. The first has Animal Crackers (giraffes, lions, elephants, etc) like you would find in a coloring book.
And the second has Seascape (with seahorses, turtles, octopi or is that octopuses?!, starfish, etc).
I am having great fun with Beth’s tops!!
We had to go to my husband’s chemo appt on Thursday because of the holiday, and the Voyeur of the Day was a bunny rabbit! I was so surprised that I fumbled in my purse for my camera and missed him in the photo. But when I saw the photo, there was a bright red Cardinal in the background, so I took another closeup of him and called it good! Always something interesting outside of the chemo room. Fortunately, only two more visits to go – yea!
