Brad is recovering but it will be a while before he is 100 percent and not a fall risk. When you are caring for a loved one, I recommend two different kinds of sewing: binding or embroidery. Both are portable and don't take much thought. It's a kind of sewing that I find calming. While I care for Brad, I've been binding. I have one quilt left and then I will probably switch to embroidery.
This lap quilt was finished shortly before his surgery and it's for my oldest friend Linda. She also wanted a table runner to match and since I had a few extra blocks, I was happy to oblige!
I think the most impressive part of the quilt is Terri Trotter's quilting. Often I let her choose what she thinks will work best for a quilt. We are old friends and I trust her judgement. She's never let me down and I love this pattern on the quilt. It takes it to a whole new level!
Some other things to share with you are comments or emails you shared with me. First off, Libby wants to know from Sue P. : "Please share your secret for getting such wonderful garden photographs!!!" (like here).
Kathie L thinks (and I agree!) Libby's mother was ingenious in whipstitching the Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt featured on Friday (here).
Well I'm off to care for hubby! See you tomorrow and stay safe!
