First off,I want to thank you all for your comments. I know the time I spend with Marie is more important than the time I spend chained to the sewing machine frantically trying to get her a quilt done "in time."
I also want to thank the Heartstrings group for their offers of blocks and tops! Wow....I am really amazed at how generous quilters can be. Becky showed me a top she had just finished...she was going to donate it to her guild to finish into a quilt and to be used for their charities, but instead she is sending it to me and marking it as a donation to hospice since Marie is in hospice care. Now I'll only have to quilt it, bind it, and give it to her :c) Thank you Becky!
Why is it we think that we have to tackle some things all ourselves?! Sometimes it DOES take a village! Thanks for making me see that. I'll post pics of the quilt when it arrives and when it is finished. I'd love to have some quilts done and on hand so that when the need arises, I have something.
So...last night I finished quilting on the "Cabin Fever" tiny logs quilt. Without the quilt being side lit, you can hardly see the quilting.....the quilt is so busy. This is for a show our guild is doing at the local main library in Columbia. The theme is log cabin quilts. They will be hanging for a month I believe (but I might be wrong) and I'm really looking forward to seeing all the quilts...log cabin variations are endless! From traditional, to contemporary to really arty..it's going to be a fun show.
