Hope everyone is doing okay after hurricane Florence. We stayed with our brother for about 9 nights. Mary and I both brought handwork to do at our brother’s house but we didn’t even open the boxes. LOL Watching all the weather news was stressful. We had a few minor damages to repair from the hurricane and we feel very lucky compared to other people in the area. Some of our flowers and trees are blooming again – I think they are confused. It is suppose to be fall.
Last week I decided to finish a lap/throw quilt for one of my sons before I started daily radiation treatments later this month. I heard that fatigue is a side effect of the radiation so I am working on some quilting projects for the next 2 weeks to see what I can get done.
I decided to piece the backing with some left over blocks from the front and some NYC metro fabric since my son had lived in NYC. I only added a narrow border and then the binding. The pattern called for 3 borders. The finished size of this quilt is about 68″ x 58″.
Keep having fun sewing and quilting. Donna
