I’ve been busy finishing my grandson’s quilt. He’s due to arrive in early November, but I wanted to make sure this quilt was ready and waiting… just in case he decides to make an early appearance! I’ll get it boxed, wrapped in in a bag in the car so it’s ready when we get “THE CALL.” I love how washing a new quilt softens it up and makes it really snuggly, don’t you?
My quilt guild – Evening Star Quilters – is working on next year’s raffle quilt, and I volunteered to applique one of the borders. The little squirrel gets a tiny black button for his eye. This is now ready to hand off to Lisa Burmann who designed the quilt and will be sewing it all together. I love the autumn colors in this – my favorite season of the year! It doesn’t show up very well in this picture, but the background is a yellowish gold mottled fabric. Very, very pretty!
Now to finish up my guild challenge quilt! It’s almost completed, and not due until our November meeting, but remember there’s that new grandson coming! I need to sew Samantha’s “Pippi Longstocking jumper,” hand quilt my spools quilt, and finish the top of my Barn Owl quilt. I have a list of about 7 items to complete. Better get started!
