Today, I was able to finish my Jacob's Ladder top. I am calling this quilt Hidden Garden. It is so hard to show all the wonderful floral fabrics and great colors with a photograph. This is the first quilt where I have had to match so many corners and points. They are not all perfect, but I don't care. I just really like this quilt. I am so happy I got the top finished today.
I have been dealing with a terrible ear ache for a few days and finally went to the doc this morning. I have an ear infection. I don't think I have had an ear infection since I was a kid. It is most unpleasant. Hopefully, the antibiotics and the ear drops will help quickly.
Last week, on our way home for the cabin in the woods, we stopped in Chehalis at Sister's Fabric. This is one of my all time favorite fabric stores. There is an amazing selection of fabrics, including a fantastic collection of gorgeous flannels. I purchased these batiks for a quilt I designed that I will start on after the new year. I love these fall colors, so I will use this one all year long.
These beauties are for our youngest son's next quilt. He loves these colors, and I am going to add them into the string quilt I started a couple of weeks ago. I hope he likes it.
I am making mug rugs for a couple of hunters in the family. I thought this fabric would be appropriate. I love the plaid. I did some fussy cutting on the bottom fabric earlier this evening. These small quilts are fun to make and are good gifts.
This bunch is from my stash and is destined for a 15" x 15" quilt for Bella's other quilting grandmother. This is a sneak peak for her. I just hope the pattern I have come up with is not too complicated for me. The pieces are going to be very small, I think.
It was great to be back in the studio today. I don't think I will be back until Friday unless I can sneak a little bit in on Thursday morning. After all, how long does it take to prepare enchiladas?
In the meantime, joyful quilting, everyone.
