I gathered my Don’t Bore Your Baby quilts together and delivered them to the refugee resettlement group, which I discussed previously, and with whom I will continue to work in my extremely tiny way, but it is my Miss Rumphius moment. My delivery was only 7 quilts, but it is a start. The following pictures show a pile of six quilts and then I added the bike quilt after I played with some freehand custom quilting designs. I forgot how much I enjoy just playing with my machine. I didn’t quilt too densely as I want it to be soft for the baby.
I also totally switched gears and made some curtains for a family member’s nursery. The baby is expected Christmas Eve… It was nice to just sew. I like their fabric choice. It is a nice contrast for the baby, which, as you know, I think is important. This is the only photograph that I took of the curtain fabric and they were only partially finished at the time. And, hey, I took this photograph with my ipod; lousy photograph. It is nice to know that my DSLR is worth it. Back to subject, their nursery is adorable, but I didn’t take a photograph and I never know if I can use other people’s photographs so I won’t show you at this time.
Anyway, Happy week!
