February 17th - #47



Okay, we are moving into quilts that are quilted but still needing their binding. I will get more completed quilt photos when I go south next weekend for a short visit. This was a great group project. I found this pattern in a shop in Bothell, it was over $60 just for the patterns!!! So our group pitched in and we worked on it on a sew day one day a month. This will be another one to get photos of the others, so you can see the difference color choices show. Not better or worse, just how different we all are. I love the second row of meandering geese and have used this technique in lots of other quilts. Naturally, I altered my pattern a bit.
Today the sun was truly out for the first time in over a week. And my little crocus's couldn't have been happier about it. My little windmill has certainly seen better days..my SIL's Dad made these for us all, and it has seen a LOT of wind!
I'm wondering if any of you think of song lyrics or movie "lines" when you hear a certain expression. Today when the sun was right in my eyes while driving, I thought "my what a glowing orb" and immediately in my mind came the song Nights in White Satin"......'cold hearted orb that ruled the night'.......someone tell me it isn't just me? I think it is one of the charming things about being a "couple" with Lynn for so long. One of us can say a word or two and the other will know what we are referring to in a heartbeat! Many of our best memories are often remembered with a song - OOPS! There I go again. Trisha Yearwood, The Song Remembers When.....oh and and Ronnie Milsap It's Almost Like a Song....going to my iTunes collection to listen to that one right now. Give it a try.....sigh.....

Thanks for stopping by my blog today, and for your nice comment. I had to laugh when I read about the word association, because it sounds like what I do all the time too. I enjoyed seeing your flowers and what's coming up from last year in your other post. Nice quilting too!

I have that quilt in my ufo box. I can't remember how long ago it has been sitting, but I used the pattern as a "teaching" quilt when I was teaching an 8yo to quilt.
