I came coasting in this weekend with the almost finish of my Mom's quilt! It went so much faster than I anticipated... All that is left is to hand-stitch the binding Monday morning as we travel a few hours to honor the life of a sweet friend and support her husband in his time of grief.
The quilting of the Fence Rail quilt was quick and easy with sweeping waves over the seams and a few in the rails. I changed threads for the quilting in the brown rails because the off-white just seemed too harsh. I'll get a full shot of the quilt when I get home.
I have the next top sandwiched and ready for quilting. And it looks like I just might get it done before the grands come for VBS. YAY!
There was a bit of confusion about the date... Their Momma thought it was the week after they got done with school. I thought the same, but I thought they had another week. Ooops! We had an unexpected, but pleasant afternoon with them. 💙💓💝💗
I have a few activities planned for the afternoons (next week) while they are here. I will help them each make an elastic waisted skirt, a visit to the library will be on the schedule, and we may make some friendship bracelets. I want to leave a couple of the afternoons open for them to play with the neighbor's grands as well.
What sort of things would you suggest to help pass the time and keep them from being in front of the tv?
Emma is 9 and Maggie is 7. Leave a comment... I'd love to hear your ideas.
The featured quilter from last week's Sew & Tell session is Nancy at Grace & Peace Quilting. Though randomly selected, this one captured my attention with her DrEAMI, must make National Parks Quilt. Her topographical quilting is over the top!
Your turn! What do you have to show in Sew & Tell? The link up will be open until Friday evening.
