This week…..

The sewing machine joins what the scissors have cut asunder, plus whatever else comes in its path.  ~Mason Cooley

Adding to that thought…whatever I placed on the living room carpet, Bibby made sure to make a mess of:


As soon as I walked out of the room, she would do her little gremlin mischief….wish I could have caught her in the act.

But in the end, despite her entertaining disruptions, I was able to sew together this quilt:


It’s a large double,  in size.  I’m considering borders, making it large enough for a queen-sized bed.  If you remember, this quilt is a collaboration between members of my Running with Scissors group.    Ebay has a charity auction site, and will send the proceeds from a raffle directly to an organization of our choice….I hope to use this service and auction off this quilt.

But first, I’m still pondering, maybe a large red and white zigzag border (think huge rickrack) going around the edge.  I’m kind of liking that idea….hmmmmm…..And then, we need to get it quilted professionally because it’s so large…and we are not the hand quilting types!

    You’ve done a wonderful job, Deb, I can’t believe the work you’ve put into this. It’s beautiful.
    I love the quote today!
    We will have to have it professionally quilted, for a group of quilters, we’re not really crazy about actually quilting!
