Quilt musings

Dear daughter and I have been working hard trying to get our 'first' quilts finished in time for the county fair.

It was my first quilt that I did using my own pattern, for dear son, and dd's first try at hand quilting as well as learning how to 'stitch in the ditch' and learning to do the binding.

DD received a blue ribbon and I a white one (third).

We had a lot of fun learning together.

She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff...she maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple...Strength and honor are her clothing: and she shall rejoice in time to come.

Proverbs 31:19 ff

Blessings for a day of strength, Suzie

Enjoyed seeing your quilts! Congrats to you both! I'm about to embark on some quilting of my own - it's been too long since I did some pieced blocks, but the time seems to fly with 4 little ones under 8 years old and now another due in January!

Stop by and say hi sometime -
