Another Vets Home Quilt
This was another quick quilt for the veterans home project for my friend, Pat. I put this one together in an afternoon. It's real satisfying to get one of these quickies done after working for a long time on a big quilt. Daisy is peeking out from under it!
I had a class last night at The Fabric Patch, and it sure was good to sit and sew with a bunch of nice ladies. The project is "Around the Block," an older Rabbit Factory pattern. I couldn't find a picture online of the pattern. It's basically a simply pieced quilt with houses and buildings around the border. I really like the quilt. It's a two-part class. Last night was boring, a lot of strip piecing. Again, just an excuse to get out of the house!
Only one purple bag followed me home. I picked up a few cuts of some darker neutrals. And Jane saved me a copy of the new Judy Martin book, "Scraps." I haven't had a chance to look through it yet, but the cover quilts look interesting.
My gratitude for the day is the anticipation of enjoying that new book!
