Getting close....

Good evening everyone!  I got to volunteer at the Book Fair at my daughter's school today and it brought back alot of memories.  My sister tells me that I missed out on my childhood because my nose was stuck in a book all the time!  I could not believe out of all the books at the school (K-5) that there were no Nancy Drew books, Trixie Belden or Hardy Boys.  Classics in my mind but they said those haven't been on the shelves for quite some time.  Sad...  I did see alot of really great books though.  Trilogy's are real big right now.

Anyway, I finished up 2 quilts today.  The first one is by Linda.  Love the Hungry Caterpillar fabric!  We used a design allover called Sticky buns with a white thread and Linda brought her own batting.  The second one is by Kathy.  Such beautiful applique!  We used a design in the outer border called Celtic Weave and an allover in the middle called Seaweed with a straw colored thread and cotton batting.

Nice work ladies!  Hope you like the way they turned out!  Take care, Richla

  1. Richla, Of course I love the Very Hungry Caterpillar quilt, I read it to my pre-k class in the spring when we do caterpillars and butterflies, but i couldn't believe when you mentioned Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys books. I had to read as many as I could get my hands on!! Loved those books!! Sad to hear they are not on the shelves anymore!!
