A Bit More to Share

Since my last post, I've found more quilty goodness to share! 

First, the two small comfort quilts I mentioned are quilted, labelled, bound and washed -- ready to box up and mail tomorrow:

"Bali Sunrise" is going to an elderly friend from church...

Pattern: "Bali Sunrise" QAYG
from a class at Freckles Quilt Shoppe,
Calgary, 2008
Finally finished in 2021!!

And this variation on a Disappearing 9-patch is going to a friend living with MS...

Pattern source: Quilting Daily
Designer: Vivika Hansen DeNegre, 2012
Made from 4" charm squares and 2" scrap squares

And yesterday, I picked up my version of Bonnie Hunter's 2019 Mystery Quilt, "Frolic!"  I've now trimmed it, so must create the binding, bind it and wash it so I can send it off to my friend for her up-coming birthday...

Pattern: "Frolic!"
Designer: Bonnie Hunter - 2019

For reasons unknown to me (!), I have a bazillion assorted units left over, so may use them upin the binding.  Despite the photo, the pink of the backing hanging out there (before it was trimmed!) is a bit more "peachy" than the pinks used in the top, so I won't be using it.

And a note for my friend Jenny Lyon...I give you the view I saw on the road to the acreage owned by my long-arm quilting friend, Sylvia, and her hubby -- in walking distance from Buffalo Lake, just a bit north of here...

That Sky!*

*Yes, I'm taking photos and collecting ideas...there will be art pieces...

Linking (again) to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday. May there be sunshine and blessings for you all in the week ahead.  😊

All so beautiful, these gifts Marg. I cannot think of anyone I know as generous and kind as you have been to your friends and those who need to be wrapped in your handmade art! A treasure for the recipients and blessings for you.
