This quilt has been finished more than a week, but the photos are just now ready. It seems forever that I’ve been working on this one, but I am pleased with it. I think it’s sturdy enough for a very active 4-year old to have on his bed. He should be able to jump and play with this quilt and it will not suffer any ill effects. Function is always a #1 priority when I’m quilting. The Accuquilt zoo animals die was not available when I started this quilt, so I ended up using a different machine embroidery set.
And I’m ready to start blogging again – the stars are aligning. School starts (UNC) tomorrow and the public schools start in the next two weeks. My Mom seems to be getting better after a tumble in her wheelchair a couple of weeks ago. She always wants to be independent and sometimes that stubborn independence has consequences. My embroidery machine is back from the shop and as good as new – I picked it up Saturday. The grandchildren have passed along their summer cold to me – but I am only a couple of days away from feeling great again. We had a great trip to the zoo last Friday with the grandchildren. My six month dental saga is almost at an end. Last week I had lunch with my good friends who are also quilters, and it was so good to see them. I am feeling refreshed and ready to go quilting again.
Here’s Wesley’s quilt:
And here’s Juma, the baby giraffe at the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro. She’s adorable.
And a zebra – aren’t the patterns on the giraffes and the zebras wonderful?
