Twisted Clover

After reviewing the quilt tops I made in 2012 (by clicking the 2012 label at right) I saw that I didn't post a picture of this top with the border. The top is now safely filed away with the other quilt tops I've made for the fun of it.

Tonight I expect to finish quilting the border on a comfort/sampler quilt. When that one is done, I have others ready and waiting to get quilted. Yesterday I started cutting out a Blue Delectable Mountains quilt.  I don't think there is any way I could just focus on quilting and not have some piecing going too. I usually do my piecing while I am on the phone with my fella friend and that is near every day for an hour that he entertains me. I can't talk on the phone while I quilt with Lenni. I could use headphones,and even though it is easy to multitask with him on the phone, I need to pay attention to where I am quilting. Even though my seam ripper is my friend, I'd rather avoid it if I can.

That is a very cute quilt. Love those soft friendly colors. I've been wishing I had a way to use a headphone with my phone too.

I love that you make tops "for the fun of it" - I'm always being asked "who" I'm making quilts for. "just because" is the usual answer - and down the track the right person for the quilt comes along.....btw how lovely to have a fella friend to chat to for an hour...chatting is wonderful.
