Then, I came home and cooked Thanksgiving dinner for my hubby, son, and myself. This was the first time we were home for Thanksgiving in several years. I enjoyed cooking all our family favorites. We had chicken instead of turkey, which was fine with all of us.
I have done a lot of sewing, too. I made a tee shirt pillow for my step-daughter. It was a super bowl tee that belonged to her late husband. It had special memories for her. I loved how it turned out and then forgot to take a photo. Maybe later.
The bigger project is the Hugs and Kisses quilt I'm making for my first great-grandchild. She is due to arrive in January. These blocks have been so easy to piece. I like how they turned out. But, I must say, after using the 1930's reproduction prints for 2 quilts in a row, I've tired of them. I may save the floral and geometric prints and give away the "kiddy" prints.
I was not at all sure about the size of this quilt. It's about 50" square. But, I decided to just go ahead with it. I am leaving off the border. I found a pretty pink printed fabric for the backing. I am debating whether to bind the quilt with some lavender 1930's print or use the same pink as the backing. what do you think?
This afternoon I have put the sandwich together and it is waiting to be pin basted. I hope to have this quilt finished before next week. Lots of other projects waiting!
