There was a nice group of gals at Sit and Sew today - and as usual a nice relaxing day. My buttons got old in a big hurry! I got some sewn on one of the little pieces - and will finish those by hand since they are four hole buttons and just think they will be easier to do than by machine. Actually, either way of doing them is a chore! However, they do look cute so will do!
And I did get binding done so that was good. There is no big hurry to finish.
I have been poking around and finding old pieces that were done some time ago. Goodness, I have lots of quilted things and have given quite a few away, too. I just keep doing them - it's just something I need to do. This little piece is the result of a watercolor class taken at the local quilt shop in the mid nineties. I actully enjoyed doing the laying out of the quilt and getting the shading to work. It is one of the first things I machine quilted and I really like the way it radiates out from the center. The border, however, is stippled and that is a little rough but I still like it.
I found a really great quote on line that I am going to share with you. I am sure this is how most of us who quilt feel.
"When I'm gone, ain't nobody goin' to think o' the floors I've swept...........but when one of my grandchildren or great-grandchildren sees one o' these quilts, they'll think of Aunt Jane, and wherever I am then, I'll know I'm not forgotten." Elvira Calvert Hall, Aunt Jane of Kentucky
