A place to chronicle my quilts and other aspects of everyday life here in central NC.

I sewed this quilt top Thursday afternoon at our sewing time. It is a kit with pattern that I picked up at Capital Quilters Guild last month. I hope to layer and quilt it today and get it back to the Guild tomorrow evening. The kits are so easy to do. Most times the strips have been pre-cut and the backing fabric is included also.
I volunteered to make at least 50 napkins for Vacation Bible School. They provided the fabric- a light yellow poly-cotton. I don't use my serger much but it sure comes in handy for projects like this. I bought this elna 5 thread in 1990. I have made many window treatments, pillow shams and dust ruffles etc.
I have machine appliqued four plates to background squares. The squares are cut 20" but I may trim them an inch or so. It looks like there will be a big blank in the corners when the blocks are joined.
