The reason for this story is to remind myself (and anyone out there who can relate) to be flexible because life doesn't always go as planned. All I wanted to do on Saturday was to sit in my sewing room and quilt. When this "interruption" happened I was fuming at the thought of riding 6 hours in the car and listening to relatives that I hadn't seen in over 30 years reflect about their lives. Oh how wrong I was! It was a lovely service. My mother (who wouldn't say her own name in public when I was growing up) got up and spoke about her favorite cousin. I learned so much about my mother and her childhood that day. I listened and laughed and cried and was actually sorry when it came time to leave. So, enjoy the little things in life and try to relax when interruptions happen.
So, since I made very little quilt progress I will share a few quilts I am donating to our auction at this summer's quilt show. This first one is 8" square and is actually a "reject" from one of last "potholder" quilts. It was rejected because I decided to change the backing. So I put a triangle sleeve (as taught to me by Cyndi of Busy Thimble) on it and it will go to the auction.
This is one of the many little 4-patch quilts I like to make for donations. They are relatively quick to make and they don't take up a lot of space so people like to bid on them.
And this is just a charm scrap quilt (my favorite to make) with a wide border for a medallion look.
I love the backing fabric on this one. It is a Judie Rothermel reproduction from about 10 years ago.
And I don't think I have shared my friend Charlotte's Time Warp stars. I now have 3 non blogging friends who are Time Warping! They are keeping me on track!
So, Happy Quilting and go with the flow.
