Remember me posting about the quilt top I was going to quilt to send off to the “Quilts For Japan” drive?
I’m sure I’m not the ONLY Quilter this happens to, but….I could see that top so clearly in my mind, I thought I knew right where it was, and I looked and looked and looked and I can’t find it! WHERE could it go? I know it hasn’t left the basement. I KNOW I haven’t used it for another donation thing elsewhere ((Have I? Could I have already quilted, bound, labeled and donated and I don’t remember!?)) so where could it BE?!
However, never fear --- In my searches I came up with two tops I can quilt in rapid succession!
This is a little sampler my online group did many years ago as a favorite fabric swap. It only ever got this far….it just needs borders, and I can quilt it and it will be good to go. It’s just the right size to be nearly a twin by the time I’m done with the borders. I’ll get on that today.
This lovely scrappy bargello has been waiting for quilting for some time as well…just waiting for the perfect need to fill. It was given to me by a quilter-friend, Tammy from MD to use as a donation at some point, And when I found this top, I knew it was TIME to give it a finish and a purpose….
Could it be any better? Look at this border fabric closely!
I just hope it says something nice…LOL Or…is this Chinese? Shoot. I don’t know! I just know it has an Asian feel to it, and I know it will go to a good home where it is needed.
The quilting will be simple….I’d like to get these done and bound by the time my travel schedule gets crazy busy starting next Thursday.
I feel a desire to dig through the orphan blocks and see what else I can come up with. And maybe, just maybe---I’ll find the top that I was thinking I was going to use for this purpose?
Wherever can it be hiding?!
What can YOU do to help? Check yesterday’s post for the link for Quilters Newsletter and the guidelines. There is still time. They would like the quilts at their offices by April 30th. That gives us a month. Let’s do it!
Last evening DH asked me to go walk the golf course with him while he played a round of 9 holes. It was sweatshirt weather, but not windy, and the sun sure felt good.
Do I have to remind you of how much I love the smell of cut grass?
The grass is starting to green up, but it has a long way to go. It’s hilly where we live, so even just walking the course is a workout on the legs. Oh how I love to be OUTSIDE! And good thing I went yesterday, because it is raining today…how did I know?
Miss Emmy Lou woke me up by jumping up onto the bed soaked through…..She’d been out exploring! Which is a feat in itself! Remember, she is the one that wouldn’t leave the guest room? Seems that her boundaries have expanded since Oscar is no longer on the prowl. She’s even come down to the quilt room a couple of times and settled herself in a chair! Strange. But comforting all the same!
Welcome to your Wednesday! What will you choose to do with it?
