- Hello quilters! Sorry it has been so long since I posted and I still do not have the August calendar out! Gads! It has been a crazy month with a lot going on. Seeing old friends, going on vacation, and having my kids and great grand kids spend time with me. So much fun.
- But I did want to tell you about this lovely quilt above! Marjorie, our friend from Utah, made it. This is her Steampunk Elephant Quilt.
Here is what she says:
"It is about 63 inches square. Was fun to do, I made it up as I went along.
Summer has been brutal here in southern Utah. High has been 112 deg. and we have had about a month of 100 deg. plus, days. Phew it has been hot. We finally got some rain. About 1/4 inch. Last rain was April 20th.
I have been hunkered down in the basement. I got 7 quilts to the quilter. I just completed my third quilt of valor and it is ready for the quilter.
Now I have lots of large strips cut from the backing after quilting. Sometimes I use them for the binding, but would like other ideas to use this precious ($14 a yard) fabric.
What do you and your quilting friends do with this type of leftovers? Any ideas would be helpful.
Life is good.
I am also making a lot of samples for the class I am teaching at Guild. We are doing chenille mug rugs or hot pads."
What a wonderful, newsy letter. Thanks for sharing, Marjorie!
