Scheduling gardening, yard work, and quilting certainly becomes a juggling act at times. My yard is calling to me that it is becoming a hay field while I am quilting in the studio. Thank goodness I am as organized as I am. Nothing would get done if I let my attention drift.
I have completed a couple of projects this last month. I repaired an antique double wedding ring quilt but forgot to take her picture. Too bad. She was gorgeous with a green background and prairie points all around the edges.
I completed this memory quilt for a wonderful woman who lost her mother. I hope this quilt gives her comfort as she shares memories of Grandma with her children. Memory quilts are a fabulous way to use clothing items of the person who passed and create a quilt to wrap around shoulders or lay in a lap and remember!
I also have completed this very large T-Shirt quilt for a beautiful graduate! I really enjoyed making this quilt with all the different fabrics and photos added. It is a different layout than just a grid of T-Shirts. The time involved is more but it certainly was a darling quilt.
I have another T-Shirt quilt ready to go into the frame, a top pinned to my zipper system and ready to go into the frame after the T-Shirt quilt, am piecing a double wedding ring quilt (only two rows to go) and am cutting out a new top.
The garden is in and thriving, the iris are almost in full bloom, all the flower beds are weeded, am getting ready to paint three adirondack chairs and a bench, am working on my vintage trailer, Trixie, and am still “letting the grass grow under my feet”. Guess I need to fit in the mowing soon.
Remember to be positive about life, count your blessings, and involve yourself in your passions.
