Under My Needle in the Eye of the Storm

Elsa came through this week on her way to the Northeast with a little wind and a lot of rain. I decided to bind a couple of quilts that were waiting. The first one was for my granddaughter. She’s worked on it off and on for a couple of years. She’s a good stitcher, but prefers working with animals and playing softball. It’s a beautiful quilt and I used a pantograph called Batiks to quilt it. I also volunteered to bind it for her.

The second quilt is one that I made with a charm pack. It’s just a split nine patch and is lap sized. It’s a Riley Blake fabric. It is a pretty quilt and the fabrics are beautiful. Sometimes it feels good just to do something quick and easy and finish.

Sherry and I had lunch on Friday. It’s so nice to go out to lunch again for good food and good company. It was a great way to finish the week. Many of our favorite restaurants in Chapel Hill are no longer open, and we miss them. Fortunately one of our favorite places in Graham is still open and it was nice to eat there.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.

  1. It sure does feel good to meet a great friend for lunch. I’m especially glad to be back into the world of quilting with a scrubbed up sewing room and lots of tops to quilt and bind.

  2. I attended the Denver Quilt show and picked up the cube angles so can’t wait to try it out OM this quilt. Thanks for the fun opportunity!
