Greetings! We presented this retirement quilt to Mr. King this week. He was quite pleased with it and loved the Amy Butler backing.
The Hands 2 Help Charity Quilt drive is ending. I dug out this Medallion Log Cabin top and backed it with minky and quilted it up. I am donating it to Happy Chemo in honor of a third grader that lost her short battle with brain cancer this school year. It is 56 inches square. You can check out all the other charity quilts here:
The minky is very soft and should be cuddly during chemotherapy treatments. I will get this mailed off this week!
I took some time to get caught up on Carole's Scrap Dance Mystery Two Step. I got my dozen blocks together today.
I need gifts for several graduates this year. I picked up gift cards, but they are not very personal. I thought of making luggage tags. I started with this prototype this afternoon, but I am already planning on some changes.
This is a little bigger and bulkier than I want. So stay tuned for my modifications!
One year ago today, my daughter graduated from high school. Now, she is off in Italy on an extended study where they are studying Galileo. She will return to her university for a paid internship in the admissions office all summer. Sounds like a perfect ending to her freshman year of college!
I delivered the four quilts I bound for my local fabric store on Friday and picked up another. I will spend my evening binding for Slow Sunday Stitching.
Only 2.5 more days until my summer begins!
