Mrs. Miller, Design Wall, and Sailboat Quilt

Life …
This afternoon we enjoyed a visit with our neighbor ladies, Mrs. Miller and her daughter Ann. We enjoyed catching up on their lives and hearing about their family. They kept bringing out out the snacks, ‘Bit O Honey,’ ‘Milky Ways,’ ‘Snickers,’ chips, Coke, and water. And then before we left they gave us big yardage of 3 pieces of fabric. Talk about true Southern Hospitality, that was it!

… as a Quilter
I was uninspired by the blocks I have had on my design wall for the last couple weeks and decided to put them away and pull out something different to look at for a while. Check out other design walls at Patchwork Times.

I made a new small piece of fiber art this week called
Sailboat.

Inspiration came from a picture Amy took a couple weeks ago of Gabriel with his newly acquired sailboat on Joel’s fishpond.

  17. This is really cool! I love the fact that the blue jumps out of it and the rest is very monochromatic.
