Thank you all for the lovely prayers and thoughts today!
My mom reads the blog faithfully, and will see them all next time she feels like being online.
She made it through today's treatment with good spirits and an appointment for her shot tomorrow.
We're thinking this is her fourth time through and God has been so good to keep her strength and health up!
This week I started and finished up a table quilt for a good friend, Gerri.
She's my basketball/soccer practice, game and tailgating buddy.
She loves the colors of the Fresh Cotton and Breakfast at Tiffany's (secretly showed them to her making her think they were for a quilt for me).
I'm still diggin' the machine piecing technique for hexagons.
This is being gifted tomorrow at co-op. Hopefully in time for all of her fall hostessing duties. She opens her home to anyone and everyone and has such a spirit of hospitality.
I used some ribbon that Rene had wrapped some of her gorgeous photography postcards in a while ago. I thought it looked perfectly lovely on the back of the quilt.
A shot of the quilting on the back. I did this one the old fashioned way, bringing my underside thread up through the top and then securing it and the top thread when I'm done quilting. I like this much better, even though it was very time consuming on this one.
Amy is not hosting Friday Finish Sew & Tell this week in order to gear up for the Fall Blogger's Quilt Festival. I'm not submitting this time, but you can be sure I'll be scouring the pictures for inspiration and enjoyment.
God gives good friends through blogland, and I'm so glad you're here!
