When it rains and pours (as it has been for the last few days) it is perfect for staying indoors and sewing!
I finished off a quilt top for my church's quilt group.
Someone else had sewn most of the quilt top, but I finished it off.
It's a lap size quilt: 50-something" x 70'ish".
The quilt will be for someone dealing with cancer.
The rain STOPPED!
And the SUN came out!
... And I needed a pick-me-upper after getting off a dreaded night shift
(oh the joys of being a R.N.)
So... I hung my SAND AND SEA GLASS quilt on the wash line...
|I used a few extra hourglass units on the back. Left and right sides are from a few meters of fabric I found at Fabricland, the centre strip (which has old-style writing printed on it) I purchased at Traditional Pastimes.|
|My friend Dalene did an AMAZING job with a seashell pattern! |
I just LOVE it!
