Last week, I felt desperate to sew, but every day passed without a stitch. Friday I was leaving for the weekend to visit my mother-in-law and father-in-law. I brought my sewing machine. When we visit, I usually bring something to work on, but I leave my machine at home. The weekend, I had to quilt. I had plenty of time to sew. I feel peaceful.
The top is getting close. I have plans for appliqué vines, leaves, and flowers that will grow up into the yellow panel. I like it the way it is, but it’s about 12” short on the width. I need to think about how I will handle the extra inches.
This quilt is for my friend Leslie, her husband Jonathan, and their son Abraham. I don’t usually share pictures of my quilts till they are finished, but I’m excited for Leslie to see. When I visit them, I feel the love they have for each other, and for their home.
