Once again it has been a while since I posted to this blog. That should be changing as things are simmering down now. Last week I returned from San Diego. My youngest grandchild was graduating from high school.
This is a sofa quilt for my grandson and his wife. I also have enough of the brown paisley used in the patches and for the backing to make window valances to match. Have lots of scraps from this project and I may make some pillows, too. I will be slow-stitching the label on tonight.
Tomorrow I am going to Sharon's and put my Spool flimsy on her long arm and begin quilting it. I made all the blocks while at my guild's spring retreat. I guess I need to press it again before tomorrow. It has been folded into a project box for a few months.
This wonky spool pattern was designed by Camille Roskelley of Thimble Blossoms. It is also a throw sized quilt. I have some really cute, sewing-themed fabric for the backing and variegated thread for the quilting.
Today I am linking up to Kathy's Quilts
for Slow Sunday Stitching.
May all your ups and downs in life be with needle and thread.
