This summer flew by with little time for quilting or posting. So, I will show you this puzzle quilt that members of the Pine Tree Quilter’s Guild made back in 1998. It would be considered a potholder quilt except for the fact that the blocks are not sew together, but rather travel together basted on a backing. I made the one with the appliqued tree in the center and drunkard’s path blocks around the outside. I remember stitching on this during the ice storm of 1998 with a snake light wrapped around my neck as we had no power for quite a while.
The best reason for the shortage of quilting time was this:
We are so fortunate to have this one once a week (and more if we are lucky).
playing in Nana's scraps
But we were so happy to have a visit from this one who moved to Florida almost two years ago. We go to visit whenever we can, but I am so much happier when he is here!!
Pure joy! Oh how he loves the water!
I love this shot looking through the screen door on the front porch!
I hated letting go!
But, we will be flying down to visit again in 3 weeks.
I hope you all had special family time this summer too!
Back to quilty postings next week!!!
