Small quilt for sick friend
While I was trying to collect family pictures to make my cousin with Alzheimer's disease a quilt, we got word that a dear friend in Japan with Parkinson's disease is rapidly going downhill, in pain all the time, and not able to move easily; so I changed gears and made a quilt for her in a color combination she had expressed a preference for years ago. Something went wrong in the piecing and I ended up having to sacrifice the points in some of the block, which goes very much against the grain. Maybe I was too much in a hurry, or maybe it was the wobbly presserfoot on my old, cheap Kenmore. Anyway, in hopes of a better job next time, I bought a presserfoot today that is supposed to make a perfect 1/4" seam.
As you can see, this is just the top. Not sure yet whether I will quilt it by hand or machine, but I am going to bind it very simply in either lavender or purple.
