I did have some happy news just before my illness. My Stars quilt won a blue ribbon at the county fair.
This is the quilt I made for my daughter, her birthday is 4th of July so I made this for her but was unable to give it to her until later in August. She loved it and I was so glad to have made it.
My Disappearing 4 Patch, that Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilt Company signed (it was her pattern I used) won a red ribbon.
Since then I have not done a lot of sewing. When I went to St. George to visit my daughter in late August I did get to go to the Deseret Industries thrift store. I am always looking for scraps of flannel for the charity baby quilts I have been making. Instead of flannel though I found a bag of regular scraps. When I got it to my daughters I opened it and started sorting. Luckily in the middle were bags of notions for quilting. Plus there was a beautiful panel of exotic birds and all done in jewel tones.
Here it is September and I have so much sewing to do and so little time. Just before I got sick I made some blocks that I have been wanting to try. They are called Framed Friendship.
Well that's about all I have been doing for the last little while. Hope you are enjoying the fall weather we have been experiencing.
