A car ride with Husband on Monday night gave me time to stitch down the binding, so That Baby Quilt is complete. The inspiration came from here: http://piecesofcontentment.blogspot.com/2011/02/fresh-flowers-quilt.html
Again the colors on the front were chosen to complement the back.
The back itself is pieced to use up the last little scraps of the frog fabric. We do what is necessary with really good fabric.
I am so pleased and I hope the new family will be, too.
As part of the celebration of the 175th anniversary of Relief Society, women gathered Saturday morning for a Day of Service. Projects were intended mostly for the needy in our area including battered womens shelters, homeless shelters, retirement homes, refugee services, military service members, missionaries and others.
Sparkle Jane and I were immediately drawn to the area where baby dolls were being cleaned and given new custom clothing.
In just a few hours we were able to each do a few dolls.
A very successful way to spend a rainy Saturday morning.
The vacuuming got done. The dinner got done. A little more yard work got done.
The top got done.
YAY! Happy National Quilting Day!
ps–Miss Jenna’s quilt languishes. Maybe I will get it basted tomorrow, but I really can’t feel bad about today with all that did get done.
