I got a lovely surprise after work today…a parcel from my friend Vicki in Maine! I had sent Vicki shopping for 1930s reproduction fabrics for me to use to finish my churndash quilt (my June block in the We Be Learning Bee). She has access to so many quilt shops there in Rockport Maine! We had gone shopping to our local quilt shop here in Whitehorse, but they didn’t have much of a selection. So I volunteered Vicki to shop for me when she got home. What a great friend!
In addition to the outer border, backing and binding fabric, she also sent along the fabric for my sister’s quilt. Now that’s a quilt I can’t show you until it is done and on her doorstep because she follows this blog. (Hi Heidi!). Today is also my brother’s birthday, but he doesn’t follow the blog (Happy Birthday, Bill, just in case you do!)
So these are my new works in progress for the next little while!
