Another quilt from a class
One of the ladies in our quilt guild taught us to make this quilt in a class from a book by Nancy Brenan Daniel. I dug out a lot of batiks to make it. The leftover pieces worked as a very colorful border. In the picture, it's still just a top. I machine quilted it on one of my treadles. The center 10 blocks have a curly pattern that looks like overlapping flower petals, and the outer blocks have chrysanthemums quilted in them. The sashing and border are quilted in-the-ditch. The quilt is now on Mom's bed at the nursing home. She may forget a lot of other stuff, but so far, she remembers me finishing this quilt while she was living here with us. I think that this was the book: Nancy Brenan Daniel book
I'm getting around the house with a wheelchair and walker today. Tomorrow, I'll call Dr. Stehn and make an appointment to follow up on this knee injury. It's not as much fun as you might think, LOL. But there are some bonuses--while straightening in my office so I could sleep on the day bed instead of trying to get upstairs to the bedroom, I found some blocks from a TOGA in Seattle. Maybe I can be planning to get them put together soon.
