|City Green is on the longarm!|
Now I would like to make a couple of quickie projects before I start on a new quilt top. Ideally I should have a top being pieced while I have one on the longarm being quilted. Ideally, another funny concept - my life is not acting "ideally" lately!
Remember the heart quilt I am making as a friendship quilt with Gina? I have TONS of heart fabric for that quilt and now we are done with the squares! (Little sob.)
What to do with the leftovers? Make an apron, duh! I love making aprons, they are so fast and such great things to own. My daughter, Emily, is going to a wedding shower on February 11th and she asked me to make an apron for the bride. What is more perfect than hearts?
I had made a small project out of these fabrics and had plans for a follow up which did not occur. What to do with the fabric? (You know where this is going, don't you?) Make another apron!
There is a new young family in our neighborhood and I have been meaning to go over with a welcome present. I know, I know, most people bake something. I am not much of a baker but I sure like to sew! This will be a perfect welcome to the neighborhood present.
I never have too much quilting, but luckily I have too much fabric. And while my life is not ideal, my stash is very nearly perfect. From it I can give gifts from my heart to young women, celebrating their loves and their new homes. And inbetween time, I can start quilting on my finally done City Green quilt.
Now that's what I call ideal!
