Comfort Time

Today's seasonally pleasant weather allowed me to go to The Cat's Whisker's Studio in Laconia, New Hampshire for a brief quilting adventure.

Here is Ellen, helping me by loading up my quilt on the big machine.

This is a tiny scaled quilt for my usual work. It was done with 1½ inch squares to form the Friendship Stars in a diminutive variation known as "Twinklers."

You can see the Powder Blue 100% Cotton flannel backing on the back roller in the above photograph.

The quilting was free-handed by me in an edge-to-edge organic swirl worked in swaths of approximately one six inch block width across the surface of the quilt.

This wheel-chair sized lap quilt is constructed of mostly American Civil War historically accurate cotton prints, with the occasional "wanna-be" traditional fabrics tossed into the mix.

Thank you, Ellen, for snapping my picture just as I began all the fun!!

Happy quilting!

That will be a happy lap quilt for someone in a wheelchair. Do you have someone in mind, or are you donating it to a facility?

Welcome back to blogging, Vic! I've missed your posts.
The twinkle blocks are so, well, twinkling. The blue flannel backing will be very cozy.
