Quilting Again

Today I spent almost all day in the studio. I worked on some small Christmas gifts but also started on a charity quilt (guild project). I got the polka dot fabric on sale and the center square was a $1.00 fat quarter. I love fabric sales. The white is shirting that was given to the guild and I use some of it in every charity quilt I do. I will probably use the same as the backing.

Anyway, this is going to be a disappearing 9 patch so this is what happens when it is cut. I have only cut the square and will probably turn the parts a few times before I begin sewing.

I love the colors and the brightness: I hope it will brighten some child's life.

I am leaving in two days to go to central Fl to visit my mother for a few days. And, I am trying to get everything for Christmas done before I go. I think all the gifts are either made or purchased so tomorrow I will try to get them all wrapped and ready for the mail. Then I will leave them for DH to mail, his contribution to Christmas preparation. lol

Happy Birthday, again, Linda.
