Moving Right Along!

Finished up a mug rug for the Two for Teal 2014 swap for ovarian cancer. Was great to participate at least in a small way for such a worthy cause. Hope my partner likes her mug rug.

Also working on my quilt for Rachel of Stitched in Color's Angled Camp. Still have to cut some more rows. I am slow because I keep changing fabrics. I have NEVER been able to choose fabrics and stick with those fabric choices. Ah well...that is part of the fun of quilting. I love, love, love the Charley Harper fabrics from Fabric Worm. Great store if you live in California. For those of us who don't, fabulous online store also!

And finally Textile Fabrics in Nashville is having their big Fall sale - 40% off all fabrics and 70% off sale fabrics. You cannot get better than that. Sad that I cannot go on Monday, which is the first day of the sale, but Tuesday will definitely include a visit!

Memorial Quilt Delivered

Memorial quilt - quilted, washed, delivered. I promised my father I would not post his photo online. He did not quite believe me, so would only show lower the quilt to his eyebrows. I think he would approve of this photo.

The quilt is in honor of my mother who died in a house fire on February 1 this year. If you follow my blog, you have seen the quilt in progress. My mother and I picked out the fabrics and pattern during Christmas 2013, so after the fire I continued with the quilt to give it to my father. I love my quilts soft, so didn't quilt this one heavily at all.

I love the quilt and every time I see it I am reminded of our last Christmas together--happy thoughts, not sad.
