Here is the finished quilt that my friend, Mary, made!  She completed every step herself and I am so proud of her!
I asked her to pose for posterity!  66" x 77" 
 Mary went with me to drive me to my arthritis doctor's appointment -

...and then we had fun by stopping at the fabric store!  I mostly bought fabric for backings for the three finished tops but a pattern and some fat quarters were added for fun!

She dropped me off just in time to batten my hatches 
before a very furious T-storm hit!

This is where Lena spends her time while it is LOUD outside!

And to end my day, I learned how to crochet a new block 
for the Casablanca Afghan!


  1. Your friend's quilt turned out very nice. Looks like a successful JoAnns trip!

  2. That's a beautiful quilt! Dad used to love Joann's fat quarter racks. He would fill up a cart with them if I let him. I still have two bins of them here from his stash.

  3. Mary's quilt turned out beautifully. What a success for her first quilt and a trip to the fabaric store too! You can't ask for more than that.

  4. Fun! Is Lena's feather from one of your big cranes?

  5. Always fun to go shopping with friends.

    Mary's quilt is beautiful. Well done by your friend.

  6. Mary did a good job on her quilt. Looks like you had a fun outing, after the appointment. :) Happy crafting.
