Thursday's Tellings...6.22.2017

This week has flown by in a blur! Can hardly believe it is THURSDAY already - how did that happen?!

On Monday, I quilted down this green tumbler. This was pieced by another member of the Oconomowoc Quilt Guild. I provided the backing, binding and batting for this one as it didn't have anything with it when I picked it up.

The size is approximately 53 x 77. A good size lap quilt.

I quilted it with the Bubbles panto (one source here) as I used fish as the backing. My guild is in need of boyish/manish quilts. My hope is with the fish and would appeal to a male.

On Tuesday, I started another Graduation Quilt. The party is July 1st so I have a few days to complete. DD's choice of colors were blue and purple.

Wednesday I meet up with our Oconomowoc Quilters Guild Charity Quilt leader. We went through our stash of donated quilts and chose about 12 to donate to the Jefferson County Foster Care System. While we were in Jefferson, we stopped for lunch at the local bakery and of course, the quilt shop - Tea and Textiles. Sorry - no pictures and no website!

Which brings us to today!  (grin) Laundry, sewing on the Grad quilt, ice dyeing a back and thinking about loading another donation quilt....
