Weekly update: pinwheels and asters
My favorite part of our lakefront is Camp Logan, the middle unit of Illinois Beach State Park . Yesterday there were whitecaps on the lake. On my trail walk I saw a frog in the grass. The asters are beautiful.
I won the giveaway in Cynthia's Orphan Adoption. Isn't this FQ bundle cheery?
I ran out of sashing fabric for the t-shirt quilt (see previous post). I needed two strips for the top and bottom border. Two local quilt shops did not have that specific print so I ordered more online.
While I wait for that I went back to the scrappy pinwheels.
What I thought I'd do was make a skinny dark inner border and use the cream-on-cream fabric for the outer border. However, I cut the setting triangles much larger than I needed. I didn't have enough of the COC for borders. I could have no border, but I'd like the quilt to be a bit larger. (The flimsy is about 46 x 66.)
I went to two visitations and a funeral last week for a 28-year-old woman (daughter of friends) and two friends' husbands (aged 68 and 80). Sorrow and memories of lives well-lived.
