DWM: another tote, two finishes, and a start

On Thursday I took the next-to-last bag of rhubarb out of the freezer. It turned out I rationed it very carefully -- the bag was labeled 6-5-14.  Time to go back to the farm stand for a new supply. I bought all they had.  I wish I could say this rhubarb bounty is from our garden, but I will be honest.  We love rhubarb!

Laura liked the totebag I made for Ann so much that she asked if I took commissions. She'd like to give one to her mother for her birthday. I said I'd be happy to make another if she'd make a contribution to the Lulu Corkhill Williams Friendship  Fund -- Laura, Ann, and I are the 2014-15 committee members.  (This will tell you a lot more about LCWFF . I will be referring to it often in the near future because I am the 2015-16 chairman.)  I didn't have enough of the fabric I used in the first bag, but I had another white/black/yellow print that would work.

The new bag is on the right.   Both bags are 12" high, 19" wide, and 5" deep.

I quilted and bound two flimsies this week:  Chocqua Strings and  Blue Rails -- 6-3/4 yards used!

Next up: another bookshelf quilt for another coworker who is retiring. Will I finish it in time?

I'm linking up at Love Laugh Quilt   and Patchwork Times .


  1. Rhubarb season! I love rhubarb torte and rhubarb pie and .........! I have a small rhubarb patch I share with my 90yo neighbor.

  2. I remember liking rhubarb but haven't tried it recently so need to try again. Do you freeze it to use over the winter? Pies, bread? What do you use it in? The two bags are darling. I'm finally getting caught up from being gone for several days. Hope to get a top quilted today or at least well on its way. Yeah for finishing two flimsies.


Thanks for stopping to read my blog. I can't respond to every comment, but be assured that I appreciate each one.
