I almost always pick out a busy backing (you can see less errors that way); but, this was already put together for quilting. Someone had made the backing to fit and even had the binding put together and pressed. What a great way to get help from members. It was so easy to just layer and quilt. The backing they put together for this quilt is plain. I sucked it up and in the end it turned out just fine.
I have a friend, Jenny Hall, visiting me from New Zealand. Yesterday we went to the Bower's Museum in Santa Ana. A Schindler's List survivor, Laura Hillman, was the guest lecturer. We were very inspired by her strength of character.
We had a lovely dinner out with Robin. Sorry, no pictures.
This morning we drove downtown to the Friday Farmer's Market and picked up some vegetables for tonight's dinner. Then we came home and made five Click-It Bags from Robin's pattern.
Jenny has plans for these. Aren't they cute?
