At quilt guild last night I was called up front near the beginning of the meeting and presented with this comfort quilt - someone had heard my Dad had died and they did this for me. WOW. These ladies don't even know me yet. I've only briefly met a few of them since I'd only been to 2 other meetings. I was (and still am!) truly touched. They wrapped it around me and I felt so blessed by their kindness.
I still get chills and goosebumps just thinking about this special gift. I will always treasure it and yes, it will COMFORT me!
As I prepared to make the last colorful block for the zigzag today, I studied the other blocks. My favorites are the mish mash ones, especially those that have more than two fabrics. So I went through my precut triangles and made another one. Love. It. Period.
I thought I had it arranged well, but as I look at the image on my computer I see that there are a couple of blocks I need to move.
Of course, the quilt is not nearly done - I still have to make black/white blocks to go around the border. If I'm counting correctly I'll be making 26 more blocks, so about one more month until I have a quilt top.
I used up most of my brain cells designing a new quilt this morning. Angles, geometry, teeny measurements.... By the time I finished I had to take a nap so I could think again. :) This quilt is for my next book - I'll be ready to write the proposal soon I think.
I'm hearing LOTS of small planes today - it's amazing how many people fly in for football weekends - I had no idea! Hubby and I have a BIG and BUSY weekend ourselves: a bit of football, a dash of golf, and a smudge of Taylor Hicks. Sounds like fun to me!
