No, I haven't given up quilting! It's been a while, though, since the topic has been blogged. Since a couple of days before Christmas, I've been working on a very simple quilt out of Gatsby fabrics, and tonight I put the borders on. I'm going to contact the local machine quilter and get an appointment. The quilt, picture to follow at some point (the weather Near Philadelphia these days, frankly, is not conducive to putting up the clothesline for a good photo) has a WOW lattice that looks for all the world like miniature stippling, so I'm going to ask Sue to stipple quilt it. A first flimsy finish of the new year!
The block here is part of a group project. I love the block, but I surely do not want to make another! There are 36 pieces in it. I've made blocks with more pieces more easily than this one went together. It's called Carolyn's Star from Quilter's Cache and for some reason, the directions were awfully hard for me to follow. Perhaps it was because I was working on it too close to bedtime.
Now, what do we have here? A picture of a couple of people I know up at the kitchen counter playing with bubbles and soapsuds a couple of days after Christmas.
Sam has his grandfather's trait of sticking his tongue out when he's concentrating. And Caroline, well, for her it was all joy, and no pun intended!
