Finished a few doo-dads. I have a largish lap-size quilt sandwiched and ready to quilt, and it has a deadline, but I'm avoiding it... which explains why I suddenly needed to make these random blocks, and a small wall hanging.
This one is to hang in the bathroom at church. They asked me to make one about four years ago, and I'm tired of it now. I would like to make several and keep rotating them. This is hanging on my back door. I'm not sure how it will look on the royal blue background in the bathroom. We'll see soon enough. I meant to use more blue in this so it would look nice on the bathroom wall, but it insisted on being purple.
These two blocks are for Clare at Quilts 4 Leukemia. I added them to the pile that I photographed a couple of days ago and have them packaged up (8 blocks) ready to mail off to France. Au revoir, blocks!
And another house block for fun.
Today I watched a Netflix movie: "Moving Midway." It was quite interesting, and it seems there is always more for this Yankee to learn about life in the south. Midway is a big plantation house that had gradually been surrounded by more and more development, and was losing its old home feel, so the owner decided to have it moved to a larger, quieter piece of property. The movie is a documentary about that process.. the extended family's feelings about the move, who they met in the process, and how the move went. Quite interesting. When it's all moved and settled, the owner shows his aunt(?) around, and shows her a quilt they bought in Pennsylvania. She points to it and says "Yankee quilt" in a not too friendly tone. I laughed!
Happy weekend, everyone!
