What's been a recent quilting 'highlight' for you? It doesn't have to be big, just something that gave you a lift?
I put together a quick quilt for a friend of the family who has landed in a nursing home and is depressed and feeling like she'll never go home again. I used 6 pre-printed panels and then filled in the rest of the top with 2 different sets of 4-patches. I just pulled from my stash and cut and sewed, and it turns out that I have the exact amount of blocks to finish the top at a good size - not even one orphan block left over! I was not thrilled with what I had in my stash for backings -the colors and prints just didn't blend with the top, so I stopped at a thrift store yesterday and found a mottled blue fabric that will work much better. It's one of those things where I really want to look at the fabrics in the whole quilt and feel that 'warm-fuzzy' feeling that it all works together instead of feeling it 'will have to do'.
So what has been a recent quilt-lift for you?
