    The flower snowball quilt was on the frame before he died. There are 120 9" blocks. I just had to finish the outside vines after his funeral.
    For the brown quilt she just wanted me to SID the pieces. Easy!
    The bargello is from a class taught at the local quilt store. She just wanted it diagonal stitched corner to corner following the color flow like the pattern was. Again, easy. Just had to change thread colors about 6 or 7 times.
    I'm glad I had the quilting to keep my mind occupied. Today my daughter insisted I come to a purse party she had. She insisted I wasn't going to just sit home. LOL!
