On Wednesday we went out to dinner at the Bear Tooth, one of our favorite places.
While there, the table next to us was seated one of our ER Doctors, with his wife & little boy.
As they were leaving he introduced us to his wife, & mentioned that their next baby was due any day.
Later when we asked for our check, the waiter told us the Dr. had paid for our dinner. There were 5 of us.
To say thank you, I made these 2 quilted pads, for laying under the baby when changing his diapers . This is the flannel side showing. On the reverse is a Batik. The one on the left was a good exercise in all-over
feathers (something I need more practice at). That one took 3 bobbins of thread. The one on the right only
used 1, & took 1/4 of the time to do. They are about 22” x18”.
These are 2 blocks I made from pieces of fabric collected at the last quilt guild meeting. They will
be used in comfort quilts at Guild.
The biggest project I was working on, was this “rag” quilt for the next grandchild, Zoe.
She is due the end of April. I made the “rag” side out of Minke (far left polka dots, pink, green,
& black). The other side is batiks. Lots of x’s & o’s, & fun designs quilted in.
Below are clean-up rags (left), & Tyvek (right) hanging to dry on my wall.
I’ve been working on the next Fiberactions challenge.
I also started another customer quilt on Lily. I worked on it until I lost patience today.
There is one tight batik on it that wants to make the stitches skip. Other areas seem ok,
but the border fabric is KILLING me! Am I the only long-armer that has this problem?
