Fly Away Home
By the way, the pattern is by Kate Henderson, and is from her book Strip Savvy. I made more blocks so it would fit on a twin bed, or just be a good cover for a child.
I also need to figure out how I'm going to quilt it.
In other news, we went to a big flea market last Sunday. This one marks the beginning of flea market season around here, and although rain was predicted, we decided to go for it. Our luck was in, and it didn't rain at all.
Both of these bundles had fabrics dating from the 1880s to today.
How could I pass them up?
I bought our first fresh asparagus of the year from one of the vendors. I got enough for eight meals for the two of us. Seven are blanched and in the freezer, and one was a lovely treat for dinner.
I've got lots of goals for this long weekend--setting up a raised garden bed, sorting through my antique quilts, cleaning out the linen closet, etc. Actually reaching a goal, like this quilt top, gives me more energy for attacking other chores. So thanks again, Patty at Elm Street Quilts, for the OMG!
This week, I'm wishing all Americans a Happy Memorial Day. Remembering those who sacrificed for us is appropriate every day of the year, for everyone.
Thank you, Grandpa Beck!
And thanks to all who served and serve.
