These are some of the beautiful quilts shown by campers last weekend. None of these are mine, they will be in a separate posting.
The afternoon quiet is so welcome. No drilling, hammering or drafts of cold air while contractors go in and out working on the master bath remodel. No meowing cats, who are secured in another room. The wet saw is no longer in my garage. Two empty pallets, which once held travertine, are empty. Progress.
Too cold to be outside, I rummaged through my stash and stitched this baby quilt, it still needs borders, this afternoon. I hope the lizard fabric will delight the child who receives it. I think it is cute as a bug.
The free pattern, by Ursula Raikes, is from ShopMartindale.com.
While looking for something in my sewing room, I came across a bumpy but neatly folded flannel sheet. Opening it, three sections of this orange and green quilt top fell out. I later found a bin of orange and green strips and more fabric. This bright and cheery quilt will make a great charity quilt.
These blocks, squares and strips were pinned to the flannel sheet. I pressed, organized and pinned them to a smaller piece of felt. I’m not sure what these 1930 fabrics are supposed to finish as, so I’ll take them to camp where I can get plenty of advice from my sister quilters.
