Feb.19… hand quilt a long

Sorry…. that I’m a day late. We were not home over the weekend. Leona has had the flu ,and has been rather sick for close to two weeks. I did notice that while her illness seem to be getting better her spirits were low. Leona is a happy child often humming in her off tune way, so this had me concerned. Steve (hubby) and I were sitting in the family room Friday noon as he can in from the office for lunch. I mentioned to him my concerns. He looked at me in a knowing way,then at Leona saying casually that the weather would be perfect for camping. Leona’s face lite up with a hardy grunt of excitement. So that is just what we did. We were on the road in less than two hours heading to our favorite state park! We had a very lovely weekend. The fresh air and enjoyable wheelchair strolls did much for her ,Leona is back to her humming self.πŸ˜€

So now for the update on my projects…..

The double wedding ring quilt was worked on the most . Here I was last update…

Here is where I am now with one more ring to go until half way….

It is rumpled for being in a basket.

Then the cathedral window quilt…. last update…

Here now…

I didn’t work on the Fire Island Hosta quilt. I just couldn’t get it worked in . So I’m still working in the corner…

Now I’m off to catch up on what the other bloggers are doing….

    I just love your double wedding ring. I am working on one too and have it backed in the same dark blue you have in the front. What color did you use for your backing? Love the stitching in the blue middles too. All your pieces are gorgeous.

    Your family always has to come first. I’m so sorry Leona got the flu…it is one hardy bug that digs in with it’s toenails and doesn’t want to let go! I’m on day 51 since I came down with it and still coughing up junk. I am in awe of your cathedral windows quilt. I have never even considered making one because of all the handwork! Your double wedding ring and Fire Island Hosta quilts are beautiful too…I can’t imagine the hours you have put into creating such beauty!

    I was a little worried about you, when you didn’t post on schedule, so I’m glad to know you were off having fun and putting Leona’s hum back in place! You still managed to get a lot done on the quilts and they’re looking great! I’m intrigued that you have different method of putting together the cathedral window blocks than I use. Your way looks easier . . .

      Your a dear to have worried a little! That puts warm circles around the heart knowing you cared. I put the blocks together for it’s easier for me because I drag the quilt everywhere I think I might had a minute. That way I don’t have so much to keep track of.

    I was wondering too, Deb, but thought you might be gone. How wonderful that a camping trip lifted Leona’s spirits so perfectly. I’m sure that the fresh it was great for everyone after being cooped up! Now these quilts, you got so much accomplished, the hosta will get it’s turn again, I’m sure. I do love your color combos.😍 I have seen these cathedral Windows, but am not to the point where I would even read the directions yet!! You Go Girl!

      Thanks for caring , so kind of you!! It was good for all of us to get out and relax. The weather was lovely at 70 to 83 degrees,evenings were cooler but perfect for a nice fire. I still might not get as much done now with warmer weather .. time to get out in the dirt!
