As of tomorrow we officially are the parents of a high school student…yikes! Where has the time gone? In the back to school rush and flurry at our house tonight, I wanted to post this photo of my parents’ anniversary quilt with the signatures of our immediate family added. It was a little scary being the first one to sign the quilt (or maybe my brother did…can’t remember…had my eyes closed). Once we signed the quilt, it looked good and was the right thing to do. It was a signature quilt after all.
I am currently working on my in-law’s 50th anniversary quilt. The hardest part was coming up with the idea. Once that was decided it is starting to move along. Ok, I only have 2 embroidery squares done, but I have the sashing, border & backing fabrics picked out and purchased. That should count for something right? The anniversary is September 10th, so I don’t have a lot of time. It will be an embroidery quilt with 9 machine embroidery squares. I hope to make a label with one of their wedding photos if I don’t run out of time.
I am also working fast at finishing my first batch of Little Dresses for Africa so I can get them mailed. I almost have six of them finished. My daughter drew shapes for me to applique onto the front of the dresses to give them a little personality. Hope to post photos soon.
Until next time, happy sewing & quilting…
