Its been a very busy, productive week. Monday, I spoke and provided a trunk show to the Fair City Quilters in Sandwich. Tuesday, Harry Potter, my Australian Shepherd, and I spoke to the kids at Tiskilwa Library for the after-school program. Visiting the library may become a regular fun thing for Harry and I . Its so much fun to see those young minds working.
I also got some baking done for meals and made cookies for the social hour at church.
I am heading out to visit with my retreat friends in Fulton today and I will also be taking oatmeal raisin and chocolate cookies for a snack.
Here's my finish for the week. This blue and brown scrap quilt pattern is call Keep Kids Warm by Ami Sims. It is a free pattern on her website.
Here's a close-up. I used a quilting pattern called Star Spangled B2B. The thread is Robinson Anton brown.
I used my scraps across the back to lengthen the backing fabric.
Saturday I will be teaching beginning quilting and free motion quilting at the Fair City Quilt Guild. I prepared muslin and batting pieces for the students to make fabric sandwiches to practice on.
Supplies ready, pins, 505 spray, marking tools, stencils, quilting gloves, etc.
