I mailed a package last week. I’ll help you figure out where it went!
If you guessed Texas, you’re pretty smart! In April of 2008 (yes, almost three years ago) I made Mom a quilt. The story is here. And then it sat in my bin of quilt tops until last week. I kept thinking it needed custom quilting and I couldn’t do it. The plan was to send it to her and she was going to find someone to quilt it, but I never got around to mailing it.
Anyway, last week I found my quilting courage and just went after it.
I just did loops in the red squares and into the light part of the nine patches. It worked great, except I couldn’t see where I was going on the red squares. Oh well! Nobody else can see it either.
And here’s the center.
I got a phone call from Mom today. She didn’t know the quilt was coming. When she saw the box was from me, she figured she’d have to find a quilter. You have to get up really early in the morning to stay ahead of Mom!!!
The quilt will hang on the wall in the playroom at Mom’s house. She has a really cool red wood table and chairs and they should be a great match!
So, now you know the secret from last week!
