Vacation is over

I have a confession to make, I haven't been sewing much in the past 2-3 weeks, hence no new blog posting.  It has been very hot here in California and my sewing room doesn't have an air conditioner.  I would rather go somewhere else like Farmer Markets, the beach, antique stores, or rather do something else like swimming...etc.   Plus my husband was done with his contract and had some time off, so we took quite a few day trips.

Now that the summer vacation is over and I feel fresh and recharged, I got right back to work.  It's still hot during the day, but I think my machine is missing me.  The first UFO I tackled was a double wedding ring quilt that my friend started.   She pieced the top and got it ready for hand quilting but had a stroke before she could do it.   My other friend, in the picture, and I finished the hand quilting for her.  It took us 4 months.  She was touched when I showed her the quilt.  Even though she couldn't talk, I knew she was happy.   Sorry to tell you that last March, the owner of the quilt passed away unexpectedly.   I just finished binding it last night and will give it back to her daughter.  Because the quilt is quite large, I decided to try machine binding after seeing a tutorial called Susie magic binding





Next, I'm working on the Fabri-Quilt New Block Blog Hop 2015.  I'll post about it next week.  So excited.  

Now let's go sew something!

  1. The quilt is stunning and I adore your quilting. All quilts have a story and this one has several sad ones, already. I hope the daughter of the owner will find comfort in the quilt.
