Quilting and Family
I don’t believe it, but I am still all caught up with Easy Street. I will say that even though some people may not think that 2” pieces are not small, they seem pretty small to me. And to sew the bias edges, over and over and over again, is really tedious. However, this Step 3 came out Friday, I had the pieces all cut Saturday and all sewn Sunday.
64 of these segmants
and we still don’t have any idea what we will be doing with them.
But this is what is on my design wall today: all 12 Funky Chickens. I am so in love with these chickens, they may just live on that wall for the next month.
And here is Chicken #12. Isn’t she pretty? I hear her saying “Don’t tell me I am the last one!”
And the last thing I got done last week was December’s Teapot. I have had this fat quarter of fabric for a long time and love it for a teapot. I wish I had more of it: I can see that it would work great on a kids quilt. Oh, well.
On Thursday our daughter received her pin for completing RN school. She has been working as an LPN for the past 3 years and soon, after taking and passing the Nursing Board exam, she will begin her career as an RN. We are so proud of her!
I made her this quilt as a graduation gift and surprised her with it at the graduation.
I bought the nurse fabric when she started back to school but didn’t start the quilt until this last semester.
And, this was the first time I have quilted with Minky fabric and it quilted like a dream.
I am linking up with Patchwork Times, What a Hoot, and Quiltville.
Have a great week. Gari
