There are so many different quilts represented in these scraps! That bottom left green was from the very first bed quilt I ever made, a Double Pinwheel for my sister's 40th birthday. DD Erica and I drove to Arizona to deliver it to Kathy, who was visiting our brother Ted and his family for the Thanksgiving holiday with her kids that year. We saw wild javelina for the first time, a mama with three or four babies following her, when we went out looking for Kathy's son Jake the first evening, who was off exploring the neighborhood near sunset. It took Erica and me 12 hours to drive back home that Sunday due to the horrendous holiday traffic (4 hours longer than expected), a truly unforgettable journey.
It is fun to troll though quilt memories while sewing these.
I cut lots of extra pieces and have four more blue boxes to stitch when I get my machine back. The spa day was held over as I did not get a call yesterday. No cutting of the next leader ender happened either. It has been hot and sticky here, unusual weather for SoCalif, which is exhausting. These kinds of days make me wish we had air conditioning, at least so we can sleep! Thank goodness for a short week at work, we don't have air conditioning there either.
