I hope you had a fabulous weekend friends! I've had such a hard time posting first thing in the morning lately, but wanted to get back on track. Here is my Alaska quilt; I purchased the fabric and pattern while in Alaska a year ago with our traveling friends. Not sure why it took me so long to complete, but now that it is done I know I'll get a lot of use out of it. O.k. on reflecting why it took so long to get done, we moved in April, went on a two week vacation and came back to unpack our new home. Then in July, we moved our daughter & her family; when we were done with that, we went on another trip. It is a heavier quilt than the last couple I've made and will help us all to stay warm this winter. So without further adieu...
Yesterday I began cutting fabric for my new quilt-it is Birds in the Air and will be fall colors, all batiks. A friend asked me yesterday what I plan on doing with the quilts and after so many years of making baby quilts, hubby and I will enjoy them until we pass them on to our grands.
Not sure what is on the agenda today, but I'm sure hubby and I will think of something.
Hope your day goes smoothly!
Joy to you! Noreen
