Quilt With Us

After having a fabulous September with temps way above normal, we have returned to more normal, crispy fall days.
I have had abusy couple of weeks, but finally managed to get back into my quilting room yesterday and finish the machine quilting on two lap quilts. These are for VQC cancer patients. Today I began the quilting process on an heirloom wall hanging that I am doing with handkerchiefs that my MIL saved throughout her lifetime. When she passed away, we found enough of them that each daughter or DIL could have close to a dozen. Many of them were fine Irish linen. I am currently plotting the quilting for the piece. I finished the centre block, but now have to decide what to do on all the blocks surrounding it. It is a challenge, but sometimes I just have to let it percolate for a while for an idea to grow. That is part of the fun of quilting. The creativity allowed is just wonderful.

Hi, Phyllis--I'm percolating about the same kind of thing. I went through some old linens my mother had given me and am trying to decide what to do with them. There are several "Days of the Week" kitchen towels, a number of beautiful napkins, dresser scarves, etc. Many are damaged with iron mould--I've done as much as I can to get it out, but it had been there such a long time. One Irish linen table cloth is beautiful--but badly stained. Some one sent me to Cindy Needham's website--I think you might find her work interesting. I'll be watching to see what you do with the handkerchiefs.

Neither can I Phyllis. Waiting patiently or impatiently to see this quilt.
