So, I have been away from blogland since Christmas but very busy with work and family. Being sick at Christmas and the two weeks before was not much fun – but all is well now. I have lots of jobs lined up already so I feel positive about the year!
I made a “resolution” to get more quilts done this year and use up some of the stash just sitting here. My first quilt for the year is for my daughter who will be leaving us for University in the fall! Wow, I feel old and sad and happy at the same time. Just another one of those milestones parents have to contend with/be proud of.
So, I started putting together these 25 patch scrap blocks two years ago and decided it was time to get it out of the way. I feel great that I have this done – it came from mostly s(crap) – she loves all the bright colours in it – and I get to check off number 1 on my list of sewing/quilting projects! I also took on the quilting with my own machine – not a long arm, and love the way the squiggly lines look in the variegated Lava thread used.
