An Update

I’ve steadily been working projects. I have started Lori Holt Vintage Farm Girl quilt in the six inch block size.

The Temecula quilt along using the book for when the clues are given.  Of course I am behind.

I have also started a granny square QOV in red, white and blue.

I also quilted a love quilt this afternoon.

Blogger chose the photo arrangement.

Fun Custom Quilting

Thank you to all who responded with kind words regarding the passing of Blackie my senior kitty of 23 years.  We are all still adjusting especially the other kitties.  In time they will be ok.

As many of you know, I make and give away quilts to persons under going chemo treatment.  I started this when my husband was undergoing his chemo treatment. I continued this practice after his passing in 2018.

A Left Handed Quilter (blogger) here  sent many quilt tops as donations for my chemo mission.  As such I wanted to do something nice for her.  I agreed to custom quilt one of her tops.  These are my pictures after quilting. My favorite block is the one with the bird.  Enjoy and know that she is over the moon with quilting finished.

A Sad Day

I loved my black cat so much.  Rescued from the vet, he chose me.  He was a special feline, very vocal.  He could be a nag and had something to say about everything and nothing at all.  He was 23 years old, a record for a cat.

He had a massive stroke sometime Friday night or early in the morning.  He could not stand or walk.  I did what I knew was right.  He passed peacefully in my arms with a new mission.  I asked him to find Buck and tell him I love him and missed him. He will be missed.

Frolic Blocks

These are my Frolic blocks.  I like them.  I know that one block has the outside four patches turned the wrong way. I’m not ripping them out, they are staying.

I’ll be slow stitching the binding on my Circa 1880 quilt.  I used the same grey that is the inner border.  It blends in well and let’s the quilt shine.  🐸

Circa 1880 quilted

I finished the quilting on Wednesday. I am pleased with the quilting and now for the binding so I can use it on my bed.  I made it queen size for my bed.
