Hazy crazy lazy days of summer…
There are no lazy days at this house. Watching the hustle and bustle of children working on quilts without prompting makes my heart go pitter-pat. Laura and Emily are my latest protégés in my quilting world and I have teased more than one customer that since they won’t let me quit quilting for people, it is never too early to groom my replacement. I get great joy teaching someone how to cut fabric apart and sew it back together again and I have been blessed with many instances of sharing something I love so much with the next generation.
Before the quilting though, comes the construction. I have had quite the sweat shop going here lately and thought I’d share a few pictures.
Laura and Emily are busy doing what they need to do. Emily pins sitting on the floor and Laura does an excellent rendition of our friend, Pattie, crawling around getting all the blocks in the perfect spot.
I got blocks done for one of my own. My friend, Pattie, lays out the blocks for me. She surely loves me. I cannot get on the floor to do this anymore and she is so gracious to do the crawling around for me. She has some help, though. Kiwi and Ducky supervised this job.
The finished layout job gets stacked back into rows and I take them home to sew together. The finished quilt will be a future post! <GRIN>
