DWM: another bookshelf

We got vegetable sets and seeds this weekend. The seeds are planted and the sets are hardening off. We've learned that there is usually a cold snap just before Memorial Day and it's best to wait to plant that weekend.

Neither one of us planted this iris. It just appeared this year!

I wrote earlier this month that I had two quilts that I had to make. I finished one of them last week (see the DWM post).  Here is the second.  It's for Karen Schneider, who stepped down last year as co-moderator of PubLib, the public librarians' listserv. I volunteered to make the quilt as a thank-you and finally it's finished!  I will present it to her at the ALA Annual Conference next month. 

The back uses a dandelion print that I've had for at least five years.  Dandelions are a symbol of PubLib, for reasons that I have forgotten.  Some of the more than 10,000 PubLib subscribers contributed signature squares that I pieced into the back.

The quilt is 27 x 32 and used approximately 1-1/4 yards of fabric.

  1. Wonderful quilt - she's going to love it! Fabulous iris, too.

  2. really cute books quilt. We are waiting to plant our veggies this weekend. I hope you have a wonderful garden!

  3. What a thoughtful and wonderful gift! She will LOVE it! The signatures on the back are the icing on the cake. Great job!

  4. This quilt really has lots of personality! BTW I like dandelions...tho your iris is much prettier.

  5. Love the quilt and that "my block" on the back shows up so well.

    I cherish the one I have!
