I took a look at my quilty life this morning, and thought 'ugh', mostly same old/same old... a little bit of progress here, a little bit of progress there...
So, I have decided to take you on a tour of my quilty garage... In CA, with our near-perfect weather, a garage is like an extra, livable room - so we never put cars in there - instead , its full of - guess what? quilt stuff !!!!
So, I thought I would take you on a tour of my quilty baskets... As you know, I do a lot of charity quilting for the Wrap-A Smile project, working with other quilters in an online Yahoo Group named Sunshine Quilters. Some of them send me tops for quilting, which I enjoy...
But I am NOT a linear person - getting out a top, quilting it, binding it, all at once, is just NOT for me. I love having dozens of projects going, so on any day I can pick up a color that pleases me, or a task that pleases me... and eventually, finished quilts emerge, like this:
Look at all that great color - it is so much fun to pull those tops out and enjoy their fabulous happy beauty!
(been quilting a lot lately, not a big pile here, need to pin-baste some more this weekend)
Allow me to close with a couple of quilts I just finished. The tops came from a friend, named Moira. Great little quilts that will now go somewhere in this world with Rotary-sponsored medical teams who do facial disfigurement surgery that changes children's lives. A big job for little quilts ...
I'm home from work today with a little bit of flu... maybe I can sneak in some quilting time !!!!
Take care everyone,
