what a delightful surprise after a rainy, cloudy cold morning *VBS* As promised, here I am again with the Baby Blue Bowties. I got busy and sewed the binding on. Now it's all ready to be picked up and worked on in the evening. I found a nice pastel plaid flannel for the backing and a piece of batting just the right size...bonus! It's not for anyone in particular, but I'm sure I can find a home for it.
And these are the blocks that distracted me from starting a new quilt yesterday. I now have the 42 blocks I need for a 6 X 7 set. That gives me a 48" X 56" snuggle quilt. I have several new names on my lists of children who need a quilt. This should do nicely for one of them *VBS* And I have a newsflash for all of Ms. Ebby's fans. After living here for two years,she finally decided to check out my sewing table. It's directly under a north facing window, and she recently adopted the window ledge and began watching me sew. I put some batting scraps on the window sill so she has something to lay on. I use a table Ott lamp for extra light behind the machine and I think she gets some of that warmth also. Today, while I was sewing binding on the baby quilt, she noticed it was FLANNEL...and oh my, is that ever a cat magnet. Next thing I know she's standing on the quilt checking every thing out....LOL She was NOT impressed with me when I moved the quilt and she had to get back on the window ledge. Apparently miracles really do happen!!
A wee bit of progress today!
