Are you making Christmas Cards?

Quilting Day

Yesterday I started a project for our High School Play-

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers!

They brought me all the scraps from the costumes to make into a quit that will be raffled off as a fundraiser for the organization.

Here is what it looks like as of today.  The director is buying backing fabric tomorrow and I hope to find someone to quickly machine quilt it next week so I can bind it and have it all done by play time in November. Otherwise I will have to go rent a machine (like I did with my snowman quilt) and do it myself.

The squares are all cut at 6.5" and sewn they are 6".

There are 15 across and 17 down. Making it a queen size quilt top.

I will be sure to share a photo of it when it is completely finished, but I wanted you to see what I have been doing with the help of a wonderful friend- Jean Johnson. I could not have had it done so quickly without her help!Play_quit_top_1

and now a view from the other side


I hope your day is productive also!

Tonight is High school FOOTBALL- time to put on my LRHS garb and dress warm!!!  Me thinks a thermos of cocoa will be needed!
