In spite of the excitement, I did get going on a couple of WiPs that I want to complete in the next couple of weeks. My string blocks are sewn together and I have some fabric chosen for the border that I want to put around them.
I also decided to finish a much older WiP , my braided quilt, so that I can give it to a friend who is a new grandma and needs a "grandma" quilt! I first blogged about this quilt back in November of 2013! It is made from yardage of Hello Sunshine that I bought from Connecting Threads in the fall of 2013, and a few additional fat quarters from my stash. I think it will be a great quilt for a little boy!
Friday, I had the chance to piece a backing for this quilt and baste the layers together. Hopefully, I will have a chance to start quilting it this week.. But first, I am off to the hospital to see how my hubby is feeling today. Hopefully, life can get back to normal pretty soon!
Life sometimes interferes doesn't it? I hope your husband has a speedy recovery. Good work on your WIPs!
I am happy to hear your husband is much better! I hope he gets to come home soon. Your quilts are looking great!
Wishing your husband a speedy recovery. Love your little boy quilt!
Strings are always good. And that is an excellent choice for a little boy's grandma quilt. Best wishes to your husband.
Nice colors on those string blocks! Kat @ katandcatquilts.blogspot.com
Glad to here the DH is feeling much better. I love how this came together Diann! I immediately thought "fractured" as my eyes zoomed around finding the blue, my favourite colour, but it did grab my eye. I came across my blue strips from my quilt just yesterday and thought I wonder how yours is coming along, and also, okay I'll confess, thought that I really want to make another!
I pray that your husband will be back to full health quickly. Your strip blocks seem. very restful like a walk in the woods, because of your careful limit of colors. It is not a hodgepodge, and I will have to keep that in mind.
Very glad to hear that your husband is going to be okay Diann. Those problems can be so scary!
I love what you did with your strong blocks and what a fun thing to see your quilt from 2 years ago!
