It's a bit brisk this morning. I popped outside to see if the lilacs survived the frost - they did! I can inhale their scent all day long. I was able to get two t-shirt quilts completed yesterday to make my end of month dead-line for the quilter. Why do I always wait until the last minute and make myself crazy?
One of the quilts I made was for a girl and I really liked the way it came out. One thing I like about custom orders is that it allows me to use fabric I might not normally choose for myself.
This quilt used a combination of Charisma and Boutique from Chez Moi. Very fun, bright, happy colors.
Now I have a little pile of binding awaiting the return of the quilts from my quilter friend, Mary. I'm really looking forward to it. I am one of those quilters who likes doing binding. Nothing like a little hand stitching to calm the nerves and allow contemplation of one's life, not a bad thing at all.
