I’m back. Hope you are, too.
I don’t have any recent pictures, so may I walk you down memory lane?
One of my first quilts, from Barbara Brackman’s Fabric and Fabrications. I’d wager I made this in 2008 or 2009:
I think this next top was my second quilt I ever made. I used templates I cut out of cereal boxes.
And because it’s about time to celebrate my podcastiversary, here’s one of my first quilt tops I ever talked about:
I’ve gotten better since then.
Not a lot of quilty talk, but lots of talking nonetheless. Big fun!
Last week I received one of the most amazing gifts I’ve ever been given–a quilt from quilty friends across the world. The quilt was engineered by Daisy of Lazy Daisy Quilts, who put out the call for squares from twilters everywhere after she heard about my mother’s cancer. She wanted to a way for our wonderful community to offer comfort in a time of difficulty. For a nice, well-lit photo of the quilt, go to Daisy’s blog, here:
These photos don’t do this beautiful quilt justice, but to give you an idea …
Daisy did the piecing, quilting and binding, and Pam from Hip to be a Square donated the fab backing.
Everyone who contributed:
Sonya Sowell, Darla McFarren, Kelley Koszegi, Mary Ann Cox, Sandi Harrah, Kati Rozsnyo, Jen Lanak, Carole Wool, Tina Rose, Carole McDowell, Gretchen Firestone Tanesha Nurse, Ethel Sews, Diane Rincon, Amy Herin, Daisy Fraser Wreath, Stephanie Harris, Nonnie Palmer, Jaye Lapatchet, Valerie Root, Emily Hinkel, Laura White, Zina Clark, Pam, Sandy Hasenauer, Sandi Colwell, and Katie Ringo.
Thank you one and all!
And finally, Will’s shoe drawings:
I’ve had this episode ready to go for several days, but have been too lazy to post it. That’s the end of winter for you. I just want to hibernate. But it will be spring soon!
Here’s my off-kilter Irish Chain:
And in case you needed a little color in your life, here’s a picture of Will’s new shoes:
See you soon!
