Today is Palm Sunday and next week is Easter. Time is flying by eve though Easter was late. this year. I have forgotten how Easter is decided on and especially when it is so late in April. I guess I need to do some research on this one. So I wish each and every Christian that we will be sad in the memory, yet rejoice when Easter Day comes.
Hand quilting around here has only consisted of finishing the binding on Raggedy Ann and Andy. It is a heavy quilt and difficult to get a good picture of the entire quilt, but here they are waving to all!
The fabric was purchased from Walmart, Cotton Mill in Seguin Texas (gone long ago), and the original Quilt Haus in New Branfels. Walmart had put out the fabric with the R and A, the blue is a denim from the Mill, and the “pick up sticks” fabric from the Quilt Haus. I had never purchased any fabric from a quilt store before. I had felt the price was high ($8.00 a yard) (Oh for those days again!). When I first started quilting I was show how to do fusible and button hole stitching (by hand – no machine here). It was fun to work on when we traveled. It took me a L-O-N-G time to quilt it but it is done and I am happy, now to figure out where to put all these quilts.
Have a great day and be sure to check on the other ladies to participate in HQAL today.
