That is good news. I would love for one of my children or grandchildren to tell me they would like a quilt. I would make that happen.
Earlier this year one of my non-quilting friends asked if I would consider making her a quilt. I had a top that Carrie had already quilted but needed binding. Took me a while to bind it because I was doing it by hand and it was batiks. They are hard to bind and my hands would cramp or get sore. I finally completed it. She liked it. I gave it to her and at the same time gave one to another friend who told me that I needed to make sure she got that one when I passed away. I gave it to her early and said that I hated for someone to be waiting for me to die. We had a good laugh. These 2 women were Bob's Mom's friends that stayed with us to the end. The 3 of us still get together every other week for dinner and a dice game.

I need to shift back to piecing now.
I know you love piecing so it won't be a hardship. I always love to see what you do. Rarely do I see one I don't like and usually then it's color related. That happens with my quilts also.
I did finish the binding on a small donation quilt. I used left over charms from other projects. Had to make a few of my own. It's called Charm Box, a free pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop.
Taking a pause from quilting for a few days. Thanksgiving dinner is here this year. I have a few things to do.
Love how you took a handful of blocks and created a beautiful quilt!
I have not been able to quilt so I have been piecing as well as pulling out UFO'S and working on them.
Cathy when you put it that way.....it is better to give those quilts to people so you get to see their joy than to have them waiting for you to die.
I loved latchet hooking but my wrist twitched as I read that your DD is doing that as her hobby these days.
Of course, reading about just any craft can trigger various body twitches in my wrists, my thumbs, my shoulders ... any body part that used to work on creative projects.
Short sessions of pushing a plastic needle are fun ... look at this goofy thing I'm playing with these days. Just a step above weaving potholders. LOL (Once I have added enough brown perle cotton for the trunk and red acrylic yarn for the tree, the nails will get pulled out and I hope I will have a tree shape that is tightly woven together.
You better watch out or you will get a mystery package from California, quilt tops looking for someone to finish them so they can find a loving home.
