    Crayon Box Quilt

    Here is my Jinny Beyer Crayon Box Quilt, part hand and part machine pieced. Small jelly rolls only had 6 shades of browns so I needed another 2 fabrics to compliment and highlight the boxes. I'm pleased with my effort because I've had a stroke which has left right hand fingers quite numb - hard to grasp pins and needles - but it would be awful not to be able to sew at all. I borrowed a friend's bed for the photo. Name:  102_3762.JPG

    That is lovely Ada. Great that you are still doing your sewing after having a stroke. My husband has had two strokes and it has affected his speech....veryfrustating for him.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Excellent job! Hope your health continues to improve with your "sewing therapy" - I'd try to do the same thing.

    This is a beautiful quilt Ada! I'm happy to hear that you are still able to quilt and hopefully doing so will help you recover more mobility in your left hand.

    Love your quilt!! Both the design and the colors are lovely! So glad you are recovering from your stroke. Being ill is no fun.
    I just want to spend the rest of my life laughing.
