Good week for me

Can't believe it is Friday ...  How come the older we get the faster time flies?  This week I had finished a quilt for a friend of mine in California.  Her sister is ill and she made her the cutest Maxine quilt.  She took a panel and made the blocks into a square in a square.  All bright cheerful colors!  I loved working on it.  I tried doing some larger feathers in the outer square.  Used some swirly curls to keep with the cheerful theme.  I added stippling/meandering (Never can remember which one I'm suppose to use as one is for hand quilting and I don't want to offend the beauty of hand quilters) I think it turned out really cute.  BUT I forgot I was going to have my husband hold it up for a picture...when I remember that - it was already packed up and ready to go back.  So all I have are the blocks.  But not one of the entire quilt




After Jackie's left I gave a quilting lesson on Tuesday - that went so well she wants to make our sessions weekly.  She learned how to make HST and will be making 2 pillows with a 4th of July theme.

So THEN I needed to work on MY resolution.  I've finished my Bright Ghetto for May and have 2 more to work on.  Above is Chocolate Stars.  It is now on Squiggy and is about 1/3 quilted.  With luck It will be finished Sunday or Monday.  The only other thing on my Resolution list is to "work on" my double wedding ring strip quilt.  So I guess I need to cut some centers...THEN I made all my resolutions for May.  WHEW!

So I hope you all have a safe and fun filled holiday.  Happy Memorial day everyone!
