Quilting, Girl 8

Hi everyone,

I have finished this quilt that I have made as a favour for a dear friend of mine.

She has done a great job choosing fabrics.  The binding matches so well.
This is a gift for her new baby nephew.
Yesterday I quilted my 3rd and final Blanket of Love for this year.
Here is the back.  The stitching came out so pretty this time.
I have the binding strips cut but not pieced yet. Nearly finished now!
Meet Girl 8.  She is super sweet.  She is my first senior citizen too.
No matter where she lands, this is her fave position.   She has been a working girl her whole life.
She recently turned 9 and she is now retired.  She has multiple health problems too.
This picture makes me smile.  She quickly worked out the coolest place in the house is the hallway.  The back of the house faces east, so there is usually a seabreeze blowing through.
I feel so lucky to be looking after this precious old soul.  I totally adore her.

  2. Oh Deb, she is so adorable. Love that comfy position she favours. Great work on the quilts.
    I will be stitching along with you tonight, probably a bit more of the hand quilting on my Christmas panel.

    1. I just love the colours in your panel and I also enjoy some hand quilting now and then too. Good to hear you were stitching with me! The old girl is a sweetie, too bad I only get to keep her until Monday morning. xx debbie
