Then two baby quilts, the blue I just did simple wavy line quilting, the other is hand quilted SITD, they just need binding.
Next is a preview of a WIP for #8 - all the blocks are made, just have to finish putting them together.

If anyone would like to know how to construct this and can't do it quickly from the link, please feel free to PM me! I just made the block on my 30 min lunch break + 15 min break as I worked on puzzling it out. It was friendly to little slips and mistakes, too.

Here is a memory quilt I made from a friends clothing for her grandchildren. What a joy this brought me to make them for her twin grandchildren. She was diagnosed with cancer and lost her battle in two months
Belong to the Bee Attitude Quilters Ministry and have been busy making quilts for the needy and those in our church hurting or with health concerns, and some special times. It is fun and gives me another reason to quilt. Need to get more cotton fabric donated to our group. There are 5 to 8 of us most of the time.

I like to wash my basil very gently when I water it, and before picking a few leaves so I know that it's clean. Basil
