They each picked a pocket from the ones that I had brought with me.
My FIL always carried a hankie in his pocket. My MIL still had his hankies and she brought them out so everyone could pick a hankie to put in the pocket that they had chosen.
The quilts will be going back to their new owners tomorrow.
Today, Karen, Christine and Cathy came over to sew for the afternoon. I worked on a baby quilt for a baby who was born 6 weeks ago. I am hoping she does not mind that her gift is not done yet! I was a bit too busy sewing shirt quilts to get her baby quilt done!
There was a lot of cutting to do before I could start to sew. I did not have very many of the light pieces cut before today but they are all done now. I managed to get 15 rows sewn together today--only 20 more to go...
All of the coloured strips are different but there are up to 3 repeats of most of the light fabrics. I think that the recipient of this quilt will like playing "I Spy" when she and her parents are looking at her quilt.
The pattern is called "the Stacks" and it was designed by Karen Griska, over at the Selvage Blog. The colourful "piles" of strips in this quilt remind her of the stacks of books in a college/university library. I hope to finish the top this week so that I can do the quilting. I will be quilting this one myself organically.
Bye for now!
