I used a few scraps from that bin and think this
blue stripe is my favorite with this quilt.

I made some progress!!!
The sewing machine wasn't calling my name like it does at my house.
All I had was this quilt....
scissors and some thread.
I also had a wonderful "mom" to talk to.
Quilting and talking...
mmm. mmm. good.
This capital B made me happy.

I love this quilt.
It's definitely one of my favorites...even though it's not quilted yet!
I'm sharing this one because today
the termite men are coming with their big tent!!
Do I have all the sewing essentials I need??
Maybe I'll do some hand quilting while I'm "homeless".
I DO need to work on that basket quilt!
My family is kind of tired of this....
But, I try not to let anything go to waste.
We even had leftover chicken chili with cooked zucchini for a topping.
I called it zucchini frosting.
They didn't believe me!

Here's the BEST part.
A hairband sewn in for the button closure.
Isn't that a neat trick???
It was then up to her to sew that button on.
She struggled a bit....but she did it!!
No picture of that...sorry....she had to catch a plane.
Now I can get back to my 15 minutes....
cough, cough, sputter, sputter.....

I left all those threads hanging...
then Sue explained that I could...
self threading needle
Pull the threads to the back and then...
What a great idea!!!
If you try this at home,
be sure your threads are nice and long!
Two more days of quilt camp!
Look at this little guy enjoying the flower.
Can you see him?
I'd like to sit in a pretty place like that too!
