This quilt is called Carriage Wheels.
I dug through my fabric and pulled every one, except for the background, from my stash or scraps. Woot. That was a commitment I made at my quilt guild....to use stash.
I love the little 9 patch block.
I quilted it with a simple Baptist Fan pattern. I say 'simple' but making them nest just right on a long arm is harder than you'd think.
Today I will give this pink ribbon Friendship Block quilt to my coworker who has finished her radiation treatments. I wrote about this quilt just 2 months ago here, if you want to read a little more about it.
The bad quilt maker in me didn't make a label. I kept thinking I'd get to it but that time never came. I am going to write a little note on the back with a pigma pen because I know I'll never get it back from her in order to add a label.
The Boy Wonder is home for the summer and Buttercup's drama club won big in the area Emmy-like awards ceremony last night. Such a HUGE big deal for our little drama club in our little high school. We've never entered before and we went up against a bunch of big schools with big budgets from fancy schools in a wide reaching section of western NY. We rocked it. I need to check the results but it's possible we are the only school who won in the final 'big three' categories....best musical, best actor and best actress. (There are multiple classes of winners so each category had several winners.) Such a fun night but I was out way past my bedtime.
