It might be HOT outside but there are cool things going on inside The Strawberry Patch. Our DIL (and Gregory and Lynnleigh) came over bright and early this morning with a lovely baby quilt top that she made for a friend last month; today was quilting day! Snowbird was ready. She attached a pretty sheet music print for the outer borders (the recipient's daddy is a musician) and used the same fabric for the back. She quilted a simple Loopdeloop pantograph with white thread, it was perfect! The crowning touch is the pieced, rainbow-hued scrappy binding.
While Mama quilted Gregory stitched squares together into a tiny quilt with Nana's antique hand-crank machine. It performed beautifully.
Lynnleigh chose to create a collage with fabric squares, paper and a glue stick. At noon Mr. Goodneedle grilled hamburgers outside for our lunch; a treat for everyone. By 3:00 PM the quilt was done and the young ones were packed up and on their way back home: "a good time was had by all"!
Life is Good!
