This weather has been so weird here in Alabama. One day it’s 40 and then next it’s 70. I am longing for warmer weather to STAY!
Last year, I got a Moda quilt charm pack called Beach House. I fell in love with the bright colors and of course, the word BEACH was in it. Maybe I was just dreaming of owning a beach or a lake house, but anyway….I digress…I wanted to do a fun, bright quilt to hang in my studio so I created this quilt. I used a new Pantograph fromQuilting4Fun.
I’ve had a 17″ MacBook Pro for over 8 years and this week I finally made a decision to get a new one, especially after IPhoto kept crashing, Google Chrome wasn’t supporting my browser anymore and the battery life was less than 30 minutes. I love Apple products so I wanted to get another one but realized how expensive they are. My husband found one on ebay with TechGator that was under a year old. We saved over $400 buying it slightly used.
Today’s personal sewing project: I decided to make a sleeve with this pattern. It’s FREE and I used fabric I already had lying around the house.
This is a very special quilt for some very special friends. When Kimberly Bridges asked me to do this for her parents, Jon and Dorothy, I said yes! It was the first time to do this type of memory quilt and it was someone I personally had known during his short time on this earth. Daniel was a sweet young man came down with pneumonia. He passed away earlier this year and it was such a shock to everyone. The colors you see in the quilt were dress shirts he had worn. There were five shirts total that his sister sent to me. As I worked on this quilt, it only felt right to work on it in silence and pray while making it. I prayed for peace and comfort for his family knowing the upcoming holidays was going to be difficult without Daniel.
