First up, though last to be made. My cousin, just three months younger than I, recently had surgery for uterine cancer. She and I were very close as children and teenagers, but not so much as adults. But I want to let her know I am thinking of her and praying for her. I whipped together this quilt out of the stash of hand-sewn nine-patches I have made over several years. Many of them were made when I traveled, as a small box with pre-cut squares, a needle and thread is easy to transport. For this quilt, I pulled 24 blocks with asian/metallic fabrics.
This goes to the quilter first so I can mail it out to my cousin.
Next, I finished a top that was started at the July White Oak "bonus" retreat: a
After the William Morris tesselated stars has been quilted, this one is next.
Finally, another project begun at an earlier retreat. I sponsor a little girl on the Lakota Sioux reservation in South Dakota. She is in 2nd grade right now.
As it is a gift for her October birthday, I have a few months to have it quilted, and bind it in red.
After retreat weekend, I have to do taxes and housecleaning, but I've enjoyed indulging myself for the past few weeks.
