I can't believe that my first veterans quilts of the year were quilted in March! We have several longarm quilters in the club now so it's nice to be able to share the work. I don't know if I'll have another 50-quilt year again. But I was happy to finally get a start and I want to get as much done as possible before our friends arrive Monday.
My Mom made the top on the left. You might remember this quilt that I quilted for her in February. She used the leftover blocks to make the one on the left. The quilt on the right was made by Betsy. She works magic with little pieces of reproduction fabrics.
Bonus! I also quilted my 2 veterans quilts. I'll show them after they are bound and finished. I plan to get them done this weekend between several sessions of stacking firewood. A friend took down a giant (and dead) cherry tree and we got most of the wood. We also need to take down a few trees on our own property so I'm getting in my weight lifting exercise this week.
Last night before bed I made 2 microwave bowl hot pads. I made tons of these for Christmas gifts a few years ago. One of the recipients is absolutely obsessed with them. He needed more. I had the blue one left over and made the 2 extra black/red ones. The pattern is here. Chris is having lunch with our friend today and will deliver these.
While he's at lunch, I'll be stacking wood!
