There are so many quilts that I like for so many different reasons. I feel like I am not a quilter who likes pretty much one kind of quilt. I haven't found a type of quilt I don't like...many I would never attempt...but none I don't like. DD and the Wee ONe came to visit a few weekends ago...and had to share this photo of him... he is certainly not an infant anymore. Time has flow since he was born. I am so blessed..... love my family and the lovely friends I have made along the way. Lucky me. Have a great weekend. Must start thinking about next weeks plans.... as the Professor is taking me away for an evening.... what a pleasure!
It has rained and poured here off and on all day. I made a throw quilt since my last post...but totally forgot to take a ph0to of it..before the college boy who asked me to do it...picked it up. He wanted it for a certain special someone. I just helped out...with much drama, all bias pieces which really should have been paper pieced.... but I just couldn't spare the time. Then ran out of brown bias.... which I had made from the remainder of the fabric..... and after a trip to the fabric store...they had sold out.... so had to be taken off, then another color...the only other one in quilt...had to be rebiased and attached. What a chore. Don't care to make another brown and gold houndstooth quilt again! But its done, picked up and he loved it. I decided to go to the store and post office today...and on the way the torrential rains began, as I walked into the post office, slipped on the floor, almost fell.... but shoe broke, while trying to catch myself...so carried it through while I shipped off a parcel to a friend in Houston. Shoe was trashed.... and just before that..... as I walked into the grocery store, I fell getting out of the car...my pant leg was wet up to mid thigh.... as there was about 3" of water running/standing in parking lot! Just not my day to be out and about! I did work on this little runner.... but after I took it off, decided it didnt' need the meander in the border...so sat and unsewed all afternoon. I liked the banana looking things.... but hated the other. Now it is unpicked, think I will just add binding. Someone gave me this runner....unquilted when we were leaving for South Africa.... so technically another UFO, almost completed.... minus binding. I have a finished South African quilt...that I can't find the fabric for the binding...had it when I was in Tennessee....just before the move...but can not find it anywhere. Who knows when I can put that on. Shame!!!! Had to post a photo of this colorful South African SUN batik print. It is dyed...then they lay the leaves out on the fabric to sun dye. I saw this at the Nashville Quilt show...it was so pretty. I must admit, I never saw these in SA as I definitely would have purchased one. I also share another quilt or two from the Nashville Show that caught my eye. I do love the red and green quilts. But there were many that just lit up the hall, and the patriotic ones were very nice also.
