Fun Sewing

I recently found this Goodnight Moon panel for $3.50 at the local quilt show.  That seemed like a good deal to  me, so I snarfed it up.

A few days later I was gifted a ½ yard of this striped fabric from a guild member who was cleaning out her stash.  She actually gave away ½ yard cuts to everyone at the last guild function.  That's a lot of stash.  I looked at that striped fabric and couldn't quite imagine how I would use it.  When I got home, I set it down on the chair where I had put the Goodnight Moon panel and it was Kismet.

I couldn't wait to get to the store to buy the green border fabric and make a top.  This will go to our guild's Comfort Quilt program that supplies the local pediatrics wards.  The borders are big, but there is a size requirement, so big they are.  This couldn't be any easier.  Now to find a backing and whip up some binding.

I also found this turquoise fabric to make the final row of my Florida Row By Row quilt.  I have been slowly making progress and only have a few more appliques to complete.  Yea!

My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary this week.  It hardly seems possible that I was ever this young and that time has passed so quickly.  We had a big day hauling mulch to our backyard.  We still have more mulch to haul, so we will be celebrating for days to come!!
