This morning, we had another blast from old man winter. My
favorite saying is” if the weather is rotten outside, it is a perfect
day for quilting inside.” Don’t you agree?
My son is heading to Thailand, this summer, with our local
Church. Fundraising is always a big part of raising money for the
kids to go, so how can I not make a quilt?
I saw this panel at Lens Mills or Fabricland and I couldn’t resist
buying it. It is so cute. I think it is based on a book called”How
Much Do I Love You?”
I added borders because the panel wasn’t big enough by itself. I knew
that feathers would help dress it up a little and make it a bit more
classy. I hope the receipent thinks so too.
I has some light pink fabric that I thought would match the front
of the quilt. Again, I think it fits and works well with the front.
I used a white polyester thread on the front and the backing of
Kathy made this quilt for her grand daughter who is leaving
for University in the fall. Can you guess what university she
will be attending in the fall? What a great idea!!

I really am beginning to like words on a quilt. Maybe I am
transitioning into the Modern Quilt Movement without
Kathy pieced her backing. This is one of my favorite
techniques as well. It helps use up the left over fabric and
adds lots of interest on the back of the quilt.
I used an Omni polyester cream thread for the top and the
back of the quilt. And “Raindrops” was the name of the
overall design quilted onto the top.
This is the picture of what I discovered in my washing
machine this week. I am attempting to teach my teenage
boys how to do their own laundry. Great idea but sometimes
it fails miserably.
While the washing machine was spinning, the laundry soap
container fell off the machine and landed on the floor, laundry
soap flying everywhere. The cap just happened to be left OFF
of the container. A huge puddle was lying on the floor so
my daughter cleaned up the mess.
As a result, the towels were smothered in laundry soap and
when I washed them, this is the result of it. I had to laugh
or I would have yelled. No one was home anyways to hear
It was funny because I cleaned the washing machine out with
a scoop. So much for teaching the kids self sufficiency.
What are your funny kid stories? I am sure that you
must have at least one to tell.
Have a great Easter.
