2/17 project in progress: The Splendid Sampler!
First, I made it in red, white and blue, for America, in the midst of terrible terrorist attacks here and in France, Germany and elsewhere! Second, it was a connection to Lyn, my friend in Australia, who paper pieced several blocks for the quilt, who knows that I don't like paper piecing, much. I love those blocks!! Third? The blue fabric in the sashing is from my torn lab jacket from my work; torn on a day that I got to go down into the operating room and help with an open heart surgery. I will never forget the surgical magic that happened that day...a dying man, gray in color and with very low blood pressure...and the next day? Pink, drinking clear liquids and sitting up in the chair!! Went home in four days....yahoo!!!
The patterns for the Splendid Sampler are coming down in about a month, so I think I am wrapping up this project with just the blocks I have. I just don't want to worry getting the last ones done and the patterns disappearing on me.
So this is what I am working on, in addition to my 30 minutes of binding and hand quilting each day.
Happy Sunday, everyone!!!
