It's almost the last day of 2011! I've been reading in blog-land about how people are feeling about this "in between week"...the week between Christmas and New Year. It seems to be a relaxing time for most. For me, there has been lots and lots of quilting going on...but that means no pictures that can be shared yet. After the quilts are received by their owners, I'll be able to share a few peeks.
Until then, here is one I can show! This one was done for my friend, Karen (no blog-yet!). She made it for a friend of hers struggling with cancer. I was happy to find this ribbon design for the quilting.
Each block had a saying about what cancer can't do...isn't that awesome?
She sent a few pictures after the binding was finished. Her pictures show the color much more accurately.
A close up of one of the blocks...
Great job Karen! Look carefully at the bottom left of the picture...she has a quilt inspector too! Now I know she NEEDS a blog. :)
Like I said, I've been busy, busy quilting this week...these are the bobbins I wound for one particular LARGE quilt I worked on this week. They are Size "M" bobbins for my Gammill, which are considerably bigger than what are used in domestic machines...so they hold a lot of thread. In case you were wondering...that wasn't enough! I had to wind a 5th one!
Oh and lookie here...I even whipped up a few blocks today from Step 7 of Bonnie's Mystery. Woohoo! She is publishing the final step and BIG reveal on New Year's Day! I know what I'll be doing that day. :)
Hope you have a safe and fun New Year's Eve!!
