Yes. Another ufo on the wall. A high school graduation gift for a grandson. I bought a couple batik jelly rolls from Connection Threads and did a 1600 challenge quilt using 45 instead of 40 strips. I've only two weeks to add a border, quilt, wash, dry ...
I participated in a game called "Pay it Forward". Sharon at Vroomans Quilts sent me a gift. Then I sent gifts to individuals that agreed to play. The ladies have now received the gifts I sent, a jelly roll I made from fabrics I love and fun frog erasers from Staples. They were pleased :)
Sharon sent me a box containing the lovely items displayed on the table. When I opened the box it was like Christmas. Sharon made me the beautiful Moda sewing machine cover, mat and pin cushion. MY PRIDE AND JOY! (If I had attempted to make this set, it would not turn out so nice.) Sharon also made me a beautiful wall hanging and placed pieces of Moda fabrics, a 9 patch quilt pattern and a book of 9 patch quilt patterns in the box. Sharon knows I love quilts using squares in all kinds of combinations. It was just like Christmas.
The ladies that I sent gifts will now see what I received from Sharon and can compare that to what I sent them ... All I can say is ... I'm so glad I got Sharon. She is so talented and kind. Thank you Sharon.
I can't believe it. 50'th post. I'm the slowest blogger on blogspot. It took me about SIX MONTHS.
