I just got two quilts back from the quilters and am in the middle of binding both of them. And now I have three new tops to deliver to the quilters.
Two are custom orders (and dang cute, if I do say so). This one is all laid out, ready to stitch together as soon as I get off the computer – and before pre-school gets out!
This is one we’re going to keep. It is for my daughter – she’s been waiting patiently for too long. I finished piecing the top at that retreat in February, except for the outside borders. I found a striped fabric that I wanted to use and decided it would look best with mitered corners. But because that requires extra effort, it just sat and stared at me for a couple of months waiting for me to get my act together.
And in other news, soccer season is now in full swing. It’s so much more fun when we have gorgeous weather like we’ve had this past weekend. And when there are giant clouds that look like whales floating overhead. I just wish I had the courage to take a quilt to bind with me to the soccer games. But I not only fear them getting filthy, but I’m also a little fearful of looking like a granny. (Lame, I know.) I guess it takes each of us to broaden that ‘soccer mom’ image, one quilt at a time.
PS. One last thing that I remembered after Friday’s post. Since we’re reminiscing about the word Rad and we already had an 80’s music motif going, it reminded me of a guy I knew who thought Prince’s lyrics,”She wore a Raspberry Beret” were, “She was a Rad, Spiritual Babe.” Lol.
I wonder if my husband thinks I’m a rad, spiritual babe? I should ask him when he gets home.
