I started this quilt in Austria and then had to bring it back with me, unfinished. Why? Because for some reason I miscalculated the yardage I would need and was short - get this - 10 2.5" squares of that light cream fabric and 1 strip 2.5" X 10.5" of the dark brown for a sashing strip. Lucky me - I still had a bit of that fabric in Canada. Which I brought back to the USA with me last week from my little trip up there. This is a well traveled project and it is amazing that I have been able to keep track of it at all! Tonight I cut out the missing pieces and I have it set aside for Wednesday night sewing night at one of my sister's. Finally I will be able to sew that last row of blocks onto the top and move onto the borders! I love this pattern - it is just a block that I like and then I sashed it so no pattern. I think it has such a nice old-fashioned homey kind of feeling. Sunny Lanes is also slated to be worked on this Wednesday night.
The other day I was visiting one of my sisters at the hospital she has been at this month. Three of my sister's have had surgeries this winter so it has been a busy time for me helping them out. The good news is that everyone is doing fine, it is just that sometimes healing takes a little time. In the lobby they had this very nice arrangement of flowers. Pretty! I love how these colors work together.
