RANDOM WEDNESDAY




Remember that modern quilt I was making. It’s finished.


I am calling it City Blocks. Thank you to Joe Cunningham for such a fun workshop which he calls “Rock the Block”. For more information on Joe, take a look at his web site here.
I backed the quilt with fabric I picked up a few years ago at Ikea. I also used a facing binding instead of the traditional method of binding.

Last week I was at a quilt retreat at a nunnery in Temecula, California. It is such a lovely spot for a retreat. I captured this photo on our way to dinner.


While there I worked on several small projects I needed to catch up on. I did manage to make this quilt top for philanthropy.


I am thinking it will make some little girl very happy.


I hope you have a good week and

Quilt happy,

Marilyn

TWO NEW QUILTS


Wahoo! Two more quilts almost finished this week.

My friend, Sue Salinger, and I took a Joe Cunningham class last summer in Palm Springs. What a fun class and a fun process. And look what I managed to put together from the class. I can see myself making this over and over again. Each one would turn out different.

I’m calling this “City Block”. It still needs to be quilted and bound. I'm planning on making a facing binding. This is on my UFO list and is due at my March meeting. I think I’ll get it done in time.

The boy quilt got quilted. Yay! Thank you Bears for such a quick turnaround.
It’s a good size quilt. 70 x 90. I’m hoping to get it bound this weekend. I really like this one. Plus, it’s Gracie approved.

I hope you have a good week and

Quilt happy,

Marilyn

This week’s prompts:

“In My Town Today”
Was a very wet and gloomy day. You can see that the water pooled up over the curbs and covered the parking strips. At one point, someone was kayaking at the end of the block.

 “This is Mine”
My early morning addiction is coffee.

“What I Do”
I sew, almost every day, I sew.

“In the Background”
When I took this picture I was going for the lake that was forming in my backyard.  But, in the background is the mat I have hung so the dogs cannot peek through the slats in the fence to find an excuse to bark.

“Yum”
This is when a picture says a thousand word.

“I Can’t Live without a”
I really can’t live without a dog. At least I don’t want to live without a dog.

“A Sign”
They have been working on the underground water pipes, even moving the fire hydrant, for months. They are returning again tomorrow and I have big hopes this is the final repair of the road they keep digging up.
