grandma great and charlie

Spending a few days with my mother. We enjoyed a visit from my grand-nephew tonight!
My mom is called "grandma great" by this generation.

In the background hangs my version of the Seeing Stars quilt by Turning Twenty.

4-inch block sew-a-long


Temecula Quilt Co has started another sew-a-long with new blocks up on Fridays.

The nice think about these projects is they can become as big or as small as you want. If I get a few blocks made and decide I'm done, it is a doll quilt.
I am making two blocks each pattern so I have the option to make a bigger quilt.

binding!

Before the move I prepared 10 backs and tops and delivered them to my long arm quilter. She graciously stored them for six months and is now quilting them over the next few weeks.
I had also made some bindings and sleeves and labels before the move, and was able to locate them this week.
So, binding is happening!

tip # 40--add a bow

Although I enjoy wrapping presents, some packaging is too lovely to cover up so I just add a bow.
