I just finished my "Country Bears" top, and I'm pleased with it... I'm going to sandwich it this week-end (found a cute bears printed fabric in my stash, for the backing) and I think I'll quilt it with a diagonal grid.
I fused the appliques and hand button-hole stitched them (I just LOVE doing that !)...
Normally, it is for my one year old grandson, Andrea, we'll see.... In fact, my eldest daughter is not a "quilts fan", she prefers "design" furniture and very modern, trendy deco' (sigh). So, I guess she would take it to please me, and then put it in a closet for ever. (!). Maybe I'll wait for somebody who will really appreciate it. (Oh, I would have been soooo happy to get something made by my mother !).
Anyway, the most important thing is that I feel so happy, making my quilts. The rest is destiny ! "Accepting what we cannot change is a way to freedom"......
A nice week-end ahead of me.
Crows in the field, next to my garden.
Pumpkin soup (yum !)
My optimism and joy of living
