I am still battling this flu bug, but am seeing a bit of improvement. I am well enough that I can sew once more and am finishing up a lap quilt for the Depot gift shop. It’s been on the back burner for nearly a month now, so it feels good to be able to get it finished and out the door. It’s already sold (a friend was visiting and saw me making it and said she wanted it for her grandchild), so I’ve felt bad that I’ve been too sick to finish it and get it delivered.
I did decorative stitching around each of the colored blocks in the backing, then stitched in the ditch with a straight stitch from the front of the quilt, stitching in between the rows of fabric. The fabric was actually just a border print that I had in the cupboard for close to a year. It was part of the fabric given to me to use by the Depot gift shop manager. I had no clue what to do with it but as I said in a previous post, fellow quilters suggested I do a row quilt, so that’s what I did. It’s actually turned out very nice and will make a great gift for my friend’s grandchild. I want to make a pillowcase to match the quilt, and I think I have just enough of the border fabric for the band on the pillowcase.
I’m looking forward to getting in to see the dr. and get an antibiotic so I can get beyond this bug. And too, I want to get Robert’s kidney checked out.
Do take care and be safe, be well, and be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.
