Greetings readers! I finally finished my second donation quilt for this year!
It’s lap size (52 inches square) and will be donated, through my guild’s “community quilts” program to a local nursing home. This one kind of falls into the category of “what was I thinking?” because it has over 900 pieces in it! Actually, I know what I was thinking. I had a basket full of 5 inch reproduction charm squares and didn’t have to do any cutting – I could just start sewing HSQ’s. It would have been fine if I had stopped with those, but then I decided to make all the HSQ’s into quarter square triangles and that doubled the amount of work.
And then I fell in love with it and have had second thoughts about giving it away! But, someone else needs it more than I do, so off it goes🙂 and I’m happy to donate it.
Here are several more of Wendy’s wonderful quilts from the museum. Take time to look and enjoy!
I also want to share a few more of the antique quilts from the wonderful “Cheddar” quilts exhibit:
And, finally, I have to close with a few “earthly delights”😊. I guess I’m not quite finished with frogs yet 🙂- I love how they are camouflaged and I have to search for them like I’m on a treasure hunt!
And, of course, some trees (hickory) too:
I’m seeing many beautiful flowers on blogs by quilters who are also gardeners, but I’m not a gardener so instead will often share some of the lovely wild and humble local foliage.
