Quilt With Us

Feeling blessed.  No special reason other than I had a good week and was Spirit Led.

The organization I delivered the charity quilts to were very grateful.   They wish they had more, with winter moving in.  It does get cold in Texas.  Maybe not as cold as Montana or Maine, but for Texans, it is cold.  There are still many that are suffering still from the tornado that came through Van over 2 years ago.  I told the lady that when possible, I will try to make more.  Our Dollar General had a sale on 50 x 60 in throws buy one get one for 50% off, so I bought 4.  I will tie 2 together and donate those also.  So, for about $15.00 I will be able to keep 2 more people warmer this winter.  It feels so good to give.

I have been working on my window framed cross quilt.  I have the lattice in and now thinking on what to use for borders.  Behind the crosses will be a rose pink so the crosses stand out more.  But this is what I have right now.  

I do not have anymore of the lattice fabric.  I will figure out something.

I got a message today that my order is due for delivery today for Avery Rose's fabric that I ordered on the 4th.  I think that the delay was that some of the employees were at the International Quilt Show in Houston this past week.  But I am excited to get my hands on it.  

I will make one block then post a picture of it as soon as it is done.

May you all have a very Spirit Led week.

Thank you about the crosses.  I agree with you Janet cold is cold.  I was born and raised in Texas, moved to Colorado (miss it except winter), Moved from Colorado to Arizona, then California, and back to Texas.  I have been through the so many changes.  Though none of them compare to moving from say Texas to Montana or other northern states.  Cold is cold and hot is hot.

I really like how you framed your crosses Carol.  Speaking of it getting cold in TX, the first winter I lived in Austin (1977), my mom was surprised that we needed furnaces in our homes because she didn't know it got that cold there.  I grew up in MI so it wasn't as cold as there, but cold is cold!  Same way when I moved to Las Vegas.  People have the idea that it is 100 degrees there 365 days a year.  Not so!
