The grandchildren's school auction is coming up in two weeks. Since last year's quilt was such a hit, my DIL asked if I would do another kindergarten quilt this year. The room moms helped the children with the blocks and they are now in a finished quilt.
Another great project that I got to work on this week was a Thomas Fire quilt that my sister had sewn. This will go to a special recipient - the current owner of our parent's old home that burned down in the fire. We have named the quilt Horizon Sunsets as the home was on Horizon Drive and had views of spectacular sunsets over the ocean. The backing that my sister made is as beautiful as the front and could easily make the quilt reversible.
My temperature quilt continues to grow as February moves along. It has finally cooled off a bit, but as you can see, there is another red square meaning it went over 90*.
I had an e-mail from Cher who has also been following along with the Temperature quilt project. She does not have a blog so I asked her if I could share her photo on my blog. Look at the difference between our two temperatures. She is more like my sister's. I love how she did her 2018. Thanks for joining us, Cher
A few months ago Gosia from Quilts My Way had a QAL with circular quilting patterns. It was such fun to play along and it really gave me more confidence in sewing circles. An extra bonus to joining the sewalong is that I was a winner of one of the prizes. A special package arrived this week. Can you imagine how excited I was when I opened this?
The lovely supply of threads will be put to good use and the fabrics are amazing. Not only are they gorgeous, but they feel incredible. These will have to be in a special project. Thank you so much, Gosia.
It will be a good week ahead too. My sister is coming from Alaska for our mom's 95th birthday and we have lots of quilting plans while she is here. We are also planning a day at Quilt Con.
