Finished this little boy blanket top today. Center terra cotta section (a beautiful linen leftover from a curtain job years ago) was made during the Treasure Island quilt process last year (made for Wendy Golden-Levitt, remember?) I also found a scrap of the pirate fabric from that project, stitched it to linen and a super-soft, striped decorator fabric, and plan to mail it to her. (P.S. – do you see my silly owl who looks like she belongs on Sesame Street?!!)
In the process, last week, of rooting around in my stuff to make a display at the JCC, I also unearthed a tower that I pieced around the same time. Added lace, and appliqued a moon — it is nearly done also.
All this finishing!
And then there are the scraps from the baby blanket –
And more scraps –
Meanwhile, I am working on the lap-pin-dark-mess quilt, which is slowly becoming less of a mess. It is a metaphor for life (aren’t all sewing projects?) – I do what I can, taking one little section at a time, knowing it’s okay to return and do some more later.
There is so much else to rattle on about, but for now, this lace post is fun to look at: Janet Haigh
