She gets frustrated at times, especially when she’s rushing to get something finished, but she’s been very productive. She’s already completed 3 patchwork quilts, several pillows and a couple “jellyroll” tops. I often have to remind her to slow down. What’s the rush? But we all know how it is when you want to see a project complete.
And, I finally decided what I want to do w/the One Block Wonder I put together many moons ago and hated. You can read about it here and here. It’s going to be a large lap quilt for my mom instead. Her b-day is on November 3rd so I’ve got several weeks to complete it. I’ve already taken the too wide borders off and reduced the overall size of the quilt a bit. The orange will still be the 1st border and I’ll add a 2nd wider border of the brown floral. The back will be pieced w/the plain aqua and white/light aqua floral AND the extra strips I removed from the quilt top will serve as binding.
I’ve got a few other quilt deadlines too! The Summer Star Mini and Bento Box are due on November 6 for a charity we are working on in QA. They’ve yet to be basted and quilted.
These Double Option Stars Blocks are for a quilt I’m making as a Christmas gift for my little sis. Three down, 39 more to go.
In addition I have several small quilted gifts I’m working on. I’ve got a lot to accomplish so I better get sewing.
Until next time, Happy Quilting and God Bless!
A Thread for Life
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor. Isa 61:1-3
