Goodness, it's been a while, but I've been quilting feverishly! I finished Charlie's quilt in time for his 18th birthday, and he was thrilled. I have to admit, I was pretty proud of it myself. He uses it all the time, and took it off to college with him last week. I hope it reminds him of home, and how much I love him.
Next I made a not very traditional quilt for Roy for Father's Day. It's all white, blacks and browns (not orange which the camera makes it look like), and is quilted in an overall clamshell motif. He likes it, and I made it big enough for us both to snuggle under. (Gigggle!)
My latest is still in progress, but I just love it. It was designed by Kathleen Whiting for a Quilt Design Star contest in McCall's Quilting magazine and won first prize by readers votes. She calls it "It's for the Birds". I know cardinals mate for life, and I loved the design the minute I saw it, so I'm making my version of it for my niece Megan and her fiance Sam Barcelona for their wedding. (I thought I'd try a double wedding ring, but that is TOOOO HARD! I like the symbolism of this design anyway. Now, if I can just get the quilting done by Sept. 17!!!
