Oct 20, 2013

Hi everybody!
So glad I am back to 100% and whatever my "normal" is:) ha ha! The new allergy meds are working but then it has been cool and damp so will see when the temps rise and we get dried out again. We had about 6 inches of rain this week:) WOW! And the air is off and the windows are open a bit. The temps have been in the 40's in the morning and then upper 60's to lower 70's in the afternoon. VERY unusual for usin's here in Texas! But we are lovin it!
Didn't get much quilting done during the week as the inlaws are still here. Only 13 more days and they will hit the road:) We did get the funeral plans all worked out so if something does happen we don't have to worry about that! They are 86 so we know it will happen within the next couple of years.
I did however get some sewing done:) You know a bit here and there whenever I could and I got something finished:) yea!!! Well it needs to be quilted but then who knows when that will happen:)
Ok on with the show!
These are the pieces I had sewn at Bee last Friday on the design wall.

Here is the top all finished:) They wanted 4 in squares all for the background but I added strips instead. Much easier once I figured out the measurements:) They are wonky stars so that was a challenge for me but really fun! This was a free pattern from Micheal Miller Fabrics.

This was made by Beverly's grandmother. She thinks it is about 100 yrs old.
It needed a little repairing. So I retied it after I resewed the whole perimeter. I just took the stitches out and then slipped both sides in farther and restitched.

Her is a close up of the edge. It used to be a green and pink quilt made of a sateen fabric. I think the ties were yellow yarn. Now it is teal and mauve with beige yarn.

Saw this on Facebook and had to share it with ya'll:)
 
Have a great week and I will have quilting to show next time:)
