Here’s a corner of the quit top I pulled out of the crate to work on today. This is just a largish lap quilt size that will be a charitable donation quilt. It is made from fabrics that were swapped while attending a Romp in Texas Hill Country – a TQP retreat at the T Bar M Ranch, New Braunfels, Texas. One of the swapw we did there was a fat quarter swap of Texas and western themed fabrics so I cut them up to make this scrappy quilt. I pulled together a couple pieces of blue fabrics to make the backing – one being the horeshoe and flower print used in the quilt blocks – and pieced a backing for it and got it layered this morning.
I’ve now got about a quarter of the center of the top quilted and the gold border stitched in the ditch. The center is just quilted with meandering loops and stars in a gold thread. Hmmm… can I get this one all quilted and binding attached so I can hand stitch on it tonight? Maybe, I don’t know for certain…. but I do know for certain that it’s way past lunch time and I’m hungry so time for a break!
