My second little quilt is finished. This darling quilt was a Monthly Mini from Temecula Quilt Company. Their Monthly Minis make sure that I always have a project to work on and I'm never bored! I finish one, and the next one arrives!
I don't remember what this one is called. All I know is, it had Flying Geese, it had an easy-peasy red and cream checkerboard, and it had great country colors. And it was fun to hand quilt, waiting for my flight to Miami. What could be better?
Have a great weekend. Happy Purim to all my quilting friends in Israel!

Have mostly been taking care of sick family members, but they are all feeling better now. In my spare time (and while waiting for flights at the airport) I've managed to do a fair amount of hand stitching.
This was an adorable pattern from Kathleen Tracy. Finished up the quilting and put on the binding in Baltimore.
Am in the process of sewing on the binding for another little quilt. Will post a picture of that one when it's finished.
Sending love to all my quilting ladies in Israel. I miss you all!

It was a busy day, and I didn't have a chance to write anything about it, so I'm back today to give you some background. I came across the original on Pinterest some time back. It was made by Martha at Qisforquilter, and I had wanted to make it for a while now. However, there was no way I could make it the way Martha did--she cut all 160 triangles, good for her! I am in awe of quilters who can do that! Klutz that I am, there was no way I could sew on 160 little triangles and have them come out right...bias edges and I just do not get along. So I cut out little squares and used the "corner square" method. This worked out just fine, and voila! An adorable little doll quilt made with reproduction 1930s fabrics! Martha, thanks for the inspiration!

A lot of babysitting has gone on recently. Spent a good part of Wednesday with Tali, who is 2 years old and a little dolly. She's the first girl after 4 boys, and she is very girly!
