Progress


donation quilts for Rose of Sharon
Tonight I will be attending the last meeting of the season for the Region of York Quilters Guild. Man-o- man the time has just flown by! I have the two donation quilts bound and ready for delivery to the Outreach committee and I will be taking a salad for the potluck. I have my cheque ready to pay for next year's membership and I have the book I borrowed all ready to return. I think I have it all under control - famous last words!!

Daniel, Amanda, and Nick's quilts
I spent several hours in Toronto yesterday and I took my Mom and two of my sisters to the garden center and grocery shopping. My Mom really wanted to get a yellow rose bush and happily we were able to get her two. I took the latest three quilts with me to show my Mom even though they are not finished yet - I did have them trimmed though. Of course, she said she loved them...Moms are great that way!

When I got home I made the binding for all three quilts and so far this morning I cut a bunch of solid white squares to use as labels for these quilts. While I was at it I also cut a few extra for the next quilts coming up. Today I plan to sew the binding to front of the blue quilt 'Tranquility' and I will be working on stitching it to the back over the next couple days. All three of these quilts are huge.....I don't know what I was thinking!!

You are thinking of the cold, cold winter and snuggling up under those gorgeous quilts! Have fun with the binding. Mom's just know the right thing to say =). I love showing my Mom the quilts when she is down in March - the ooh and awe just make my day.
