The wedding quilt is finished! Not quilted yet, mind you, but the top is done. Because the bride and groom might be reading this blog, I can only show you a small corner but since you’re quilters you will understand.
Improv piecing is really fun – I love it! But for a large quilt it becomes tedious. In my retirement I can admit to not enjoying bed size quilts any more. I can’t wait to sit and make a small quilt with random fabrics. I was tickled with this color scheme at first and I still think it’s just lovely but after working with only 3 colors, I’m ready for a change. It is the springiest quilt I’ve ever seen! I love how it turned out and I so hope they will use it and not put it in a closet. I know you readers understand.
Remember I told you I ordered some new fabric from Country Sampler? It’s from Jeanne Horton’s new fabric line for Windham called Riverbend. Jeanne is known throughout the quilt industry for PRESENTATION. When you buy a kit from Country Sampler, it is wrapped so beautifully that you don’t want to take it apart to sew with it. Here is how my kit looked when I took it out of the box.
Here it is after I removed the tissue paper.
The kittens are doing well in their safe pen. I fed Mama some canned food yesterday and it’s gone this morning. I have never seen her away from the kittens. I try to walk quietly through the barn to get a glimpse of her out of the box maybe but I’ve never witnessed it.
I was able to clean up all the green, yellow and white in both sewing rooms – Hazel helped. Jackie is not thrilled.
