The mailman usually delivers only bills and catalogs to our house but this week he left a 'squishy' envelope! Look at the lovely quilt block my Granddaughter Anna Grace sent to me. She did such a lovely job of matching all seam lines - click on the picture and you can see for yourself! Oh - Anna Grace turned 10 on the 6th of this month! I made a mistake by taking the picture on the back of a small quilt and it's too red! ( I don't remember how to edit pictures anymore - lost my favorite software when computer crashed.) I plan to do something special with this block - anyone have any suggestions?
The cold temperatures have kept us close to home. I did brave the elements and met Mark for lunch on Thursday and did a few errands while I was out. I check Facebook to see what is happening with the rest of the family.
Because we were housebound I had the sewing machine humming away every morning for a couple of hours! (I could have done some cleaning but decided sewing was more important!) In the photo below you'll see the center of the quilt. Today I hope to trim off the points from the edges, then add a 2" border, make 122 Flying Geese blocks and add them and the grand finale will be another 2" border. I sure would like to get it finished this week but we'll see how it works out! The fabrics for this quilt were in a kit, I did have to do the cutting myself! Pattern is Brick Wall of Wabash County by Sew Unique Creations. I did go into my stash and get a few reds, a green, a gold and navy. Felt it needed a bit more spark!
Thanks for stopping by. Till next week, take care and stay warm.
