Welcome to June!
In spite of feeling like I've been dragged through the last few days (too much heat, not enough levothyroxine in my opinion), I've finished off the month by reaching my quilting goals!
Two quilt tops have been finished for gifting and I eliminated three projects that have never gotten off the ground.
This sweet laprobe size quilt was pieced perhaps 20 years ago by one of my staff as a shop model. I chose the fabrics and gave the top to her when I closed the shop. She in turn gave it back to our charity quilt making group and we made a backing and layered it up and then I sat on it for several years. I didn't want it to go to just anyone. Monday, because it was already layered, I pulled it off the shelf, threaded my machine and quilted it with simple diagonal lines following the design. As I was quilting it, I thought of a friend who is coming up to the first anniversary of the death of one of her sons. It's not hard to imagine what a tough year it's been for her and I hope this quilt will lift her spirits just a little. Knowing that someone remembers the death of a loved one is a blessing.
