Two baby quilts for the charity project of the Empire Quilters Guild. Obviously blue and pink -- well, orange-y pink -- boy/girl quilts. These were made with strip pieced blocks most of which I received in a swap, a few of which I had to make to reach the number I needed for the quilts. These were quickly made, lightly quilted and now I'm looking for a box the right size so I can mail them to the charity chairman since I probably won't get to another meeting for a few months.
This strip quilt was made using drier sheet as the foundation. This quick and easy method is always fun because I can choose exactly which piece comes next but will always be surprised when I put several together and see the patterns formed.
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
