While I'm posting pictures today, I thought I'd add this of one of my favorite quilts. On Martin Luther King Day in 1995 we had an ice storm. I awoke to find every tree and surface encrusted with ice. I live in the southeast, so that's pretty unusual. Since I couldn't stand up on my driveway, I sure wasn't going to try to drive to work! (When I called the office, I only found one person on the entire floor had made it. Later, they declared it a "freebie" day and I didn't even have to use vacation.)
With a totally free day, I decided to haul out the sewing machine and my new Thimbleberries book and start on a new project. In those days, I was better, and didn't have a dozen things started at once. I raided my stash (now, THIS is why you have a fabric stash!) and started sewing. I completed the piecing in a day. I was helped by the fact that we had Sunday dinner leftovers to reheat for supper.
It was quilted by the local longarm quilting establishment in a small clamshell pattern. It has hung in my den for years. (And , yes, that's paneling on the wall! It's a 60's house.)
