There was no "Black Friday" shopping for me! Only some cold weather sewing! Before the frigid temps set in on Thursday I was able to happily deliver two quilts.
While helping our youngest daughter shop for a new car a few weeks ago, my biggest fan and husband, Dave noticed that the finance manager was a Bronco fan. Dave commented on the collection of memorabilia in his office. We showed him a few pictures of other Bronco quilts that I had sold. He instantly stated that he was absolutely interested in purchasing a quilt! SOLD!
This "Magic of Oz" quilt was a fun and quick quilt for a friend. She had given me the pre-printed fabric panels and a pattern. She wanted it just a bit bigger so I modified the pattern, changed up the pieced blocks and used a "disappearing nine-patch" block rather than the spiraling pieced blocks that the pattern called for. For the quilting I did an all over "brick" grid layout. I am sure my friend's grand-child will love it when they receive it.
Mid-week the weather was beautiful! And then the temps then plummeted. I hid out in my sewing room on Friday... no Black Friday shopping for me!
I quickly worked up this Chicago quilt... It will be a perfect gift for the fan of all professional Chicago sports teams!
So... I guess in a way I did do a little black-Friday shopping... Just without fighting the crowds in the stores. :)
I hope that your Thanksgiving holiday was blessed with time well spent with loved ones and that your coming Advent season is filled with the love of the One Who First Loved You.
