My daughter came into town this week, but with everything that is still going on at work I haven’t really been able to spend too much time with her. She brought her half-finished quilt and we are determined that this weekend I will not think about work at all, but help her out with her project.
On a funnier note, I had tried a new quilter who was very inexpensive on a sage garden quilt that I had finished piecing. Last night for two hours my wonderful daughter was pulling stitches out of the quilt and got further along than I would have thought was possible. I’ll have to find a way to reward her for all this hard work because I thought it was a lost cause. I don’t know what to say to the quilter who obviously was trying to do a good job, any advice?
Our daughter has been teasing that if she’s putting all this work into the quilt that it should be hers afterwards. She even went so far as to accuse her mom and I of “hoarding” quilts! Can you believe it?? When she arrived for her visit we were showing her some of the quilts we’ve finished, the ones we’re working on, and the tops that we’ve completed that are yet to be quilted. She asked where the quilts were going and to whom they were to be given. It was at that moment that she accused us of hoarding our quilts.
This weekend I’ll be finishing the last two blocks from Joann’s Persian Plum quilt kit and be able to start on the setting kit. My goal was to have the quilt finished already, but I’ll be happy having it finished before the end of the year. So many stops and starts on this one, but I really love how it’s coming together.
