This past week has been spent finishing up a bit of old projects and newer ones.
I finished up my tree quilt. Colorful is certainly the statement for it. 60 different background fabrics for those blocks. Lots of digging around in the stash.
A bit of a closer look, such happy colors.
How is this for the back of it? When our Beverly's Fabrics store closed I purchase LOTS of fabric at wonderful prices. Many were 4 yard cuts for future quilt backs. Sometimes that works out well, and sometimes you wait years for the perfect pre-purchased back. This one is perfect.
At least 3 or 4 years ago I made a runner like this for my grandson Ben's dresser. He was into everything in the sea. I started this second one just to finish off the panel blocks. I got a bit tired of seeing it hanging on the closet door so decided to finish it off. He no longer is into this decor so it will go to my guild's boutique booth at our next quilt show.
One of my daughters, I have three, teaches 5th grade at a local elementary school. She is a little tiny thing not much bigger than her 5th graders. Every year the staff have her dressed up as the Elf on the Shelf and she is photographed in all sorts of naughty activities in the principal's office. The photos are plastered all over the school to the delight of all the students.
The best to the end of the week. By grandson #33 and his high school team just won the state football championship in their division. Lots to celebrate.
