Well, as long as I'm waiting, waiting, waiting for the coffee to drip this morning, I thought I should make good use of this time to show the quilt. (Keep in mind that I am writing this coffee-less.) (ETA: TypePad recognized my weakness and chose to eat my first post about the quilt this morning. The beast. I also hate their edit/format functions. I'm afraid to change anything in this post for fear of losing it a second time. Yes, only half a cup later.)
Yes, I am adding "run vinegar through the coffee maker" to the list that all ready has "get Jeep battery checked" and "be thankful for your AAA-membership" on it. (It was a later than usual night last night. *blink*)
Here are the photos of the quilt from last Saturday. In the photo from left to right are Maddy (not her "real" name but she answers to it), Millie, Sandy, and my mom, Dorothy.
Sorry about the lighting in the latter photos, but I think you get the idea. That is a whole lot of handstitching!! In case anyone is clicking in from a search for cathedral windows, this quilt was purchased or won at an Amish quilt auction near Shawano and Bonduel (Wisconsin) that occurs twice a year. A talented quilter produced this wonderfulness that now represents precious memories of a fun, chilly day in May with my mom and friends. When I'm at POE, it will remind me of happy memories every day. I like that strategy.
Clever girl. :D
