This is what I 've been up to lately....

This quilt is not community service. I posted on May 24, 2011 about making a baby quilt for my husband to give to a friend of his. He is being a bit secretive about whoever it is--and not because he is having some secret affair. So, I make the top, it gets quilted and I spend the time to tack the binding down by hand. It turns out really cute and the border fabric is princesses--just perfect for a little girl. It isn't as fancy as I might have done for someone I knew.... Saturday night I show it to my husband. He didn't seem all that interested. Now what I am thinking. He comes out later and tells me there are some new developments. The father is who he knows. That guy somehow ends up in the hospital and it is iffy whether he will live. So, here I am waiting to see what happens. I still don't know the guy's name.

This is upside down, but you can get the idea. I put a close up of one of the embroidered blocks below.

Here is a close up of the embroidered blocks for the quilt above. I was doing a block of the month off the Internet, but I tired of the baskets and just decided to stop midway and move on. I had six of them done and put them with a flowered fabric that I had in my stash.

This quilt was a collection of friendship stars that were part of an Internet swap I did a long time ago. I never could decide what to do with them since they didn't really match. The idea of the swap was fun. Someone out there will enjoy the blocks more than I did.

This community service quilt is 4.5" squares in flannel.

Our guild is trying to put together 100 quilts for the Citrus Heights Police to distribute. I understand we need them by November. I will try to make at least one for each month until then. It is nice to have a goal.

  1. Wow! You've been busy! And I love the embroidery too. But I have one question: Where's the watermelon tablerunner? Hummmmmm?
