Random Sewing

I have managed to make some May blocks for Sunshine. I made them early, because I know I'll be busy during the month of May. Theme is florals.


I also made this twin-size quilt top. It is a little bit ugly, but it was very inexpensive. I bought the square blocks already cut at our guild's show where we have a little store with donations from other members. These were someone's rejects. I had to find pieces in my stash that would work for the smaller-squares border. These fabrics are what I think of as "man" fabrics - ducks always make me think of hunters. And there are trees, leaves, and some animal renderings such as bears and deer. I'm not sure what I'll do with this quilt, but I'm sure I'll find a good place for it some day.


My mother-in-law is in the hospital with gallstones, which they removed, and they're keeping her for observation and will wait for her to become "stable." She has some complicating conditions that make surgery (removal of gall bladder) a touchier thing than it is for other people. She is doing well and is in good spirits but is bored. That's life in a hospital: boring.

Best wishes to your mother-in-law. I bought some fabric for my granddaughter at the quilt show shop, too! I got the Irish clover fabrics.

You might consider appliqueing a large flower (or two) on top of those squares to jazz up that quilt. Presenters at a guild demo last year had done that with jelly roll tops and a few others -- very effective.

Or maybe you could applique a simple bear shape!

Or donate it to MHC - their volunteers will put it to good use ...
