Welcome to Treadlestitches!
It's made of 5 in. (cut) squares. I was inspired by this quilt top (below) that I finished for the quilt guild a few weeks ago:
Do you make kits for yourself? I often do, especially when I'm cutting up scraps. I can get excited about an idea for a quilt, get it ready, and then work on it when other projects are done. That's what I did with this little one.
Before I remembered my plan, I replaced one of the animal squares with this banana one. Oops! So it's all animals, plus one banana square. Even the border is a grasshopper print.
The backing is butterflies on white. The new poly batting is working out great, and will make the quilt warm and snuggly for the recipient. (Thanks again, Joey!)
I had bananas on my mind last night when I was choosing a border for another Bricks quilt, so this happened. I bought this bananas-on-denim print at a flea market, and now I'm down to only a yard left. I'll show the whole quilt when it's done.
Update on the GSAFE auction: The original goal was to raise $30,000. The actual total was $37,337! My three quilts brought in over $600. I am over the moon! I was just hoping they would get even one bid. The money will be used to help LGBTQ kids in schools. (Click HERE for their web site.)
We're getting our Christmas decorations out a little at a time. Buddy and Little Guy helped put tiny ornaments on this tree and regular ornaments on the big tree. They are handy to have around.
Who says kids need expensive toys? Little Guy's favorites this week are actual rocks! We gathered these at the lake several months ago. They're great for loading into train cars or dump trucks. I wonder if he'll have as much fun with his Christmas presents?
I hope you're having a wonderful week. Happy Hanukah to all who celebrate!
Thanks for reading,
