Pieceful Monday

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend celebrating your mom, or the memory of your mom. Without them, we wouldn’t be having this conversation, right?

This is a photo of my grandmother. Together with my mother, she cultivated a life of creativity in me. She was a seamstress and made many clothes for people in my hometown and the surrounding area. I believe this is the only picture we have of her sewing (and a poor quality one at that). While she didn’t teach me to sew, I learned much from her just by being with her. IMG_3968

I had a lovely, busy past week. It involved far more coffee than usual, and quite a bit of good conversation.

I did manage to finish my little tumbler quilt. I decided to do a semi-wavy quilt design that follows the tumblers. It’s not great, but it satisfies me. Here it is, all bound and ready to be tucked into a display. It’s 7 x 9 inches, so it will be fun to find a nook just waiting for it.  IMG_7149

This week I’ll be doing some shopping for some white and cream fabrics for a wedding quilt. Here’s a few of the fabrics I’m auditioning that I think have made the cut, except for the brighter orange piece. It will be a quick, easy HST quilt once I have all the fabric. The wedding is in July, so I need to get to work!

I might have some fun with this little project. I decided to try a Frivols from Moda using The Cookie Exchange fabrics by Sweetwater.

My quilt cave could use a bit of a touch up, so I’ll need to do a little organizing too.

Happy quilting, friends!
