What have I been up to?



Here are some view of the quilting on the back! 


This quilt was first blogged about here!  It is a sampler my mom (God rest her soul) made in 1982 that I am finishing for her.  She made the squares but never did anything with them.  I consider it a privilege to finish this and cherish forever!   

Here is the full view of the quilt before I started any quilting.

Here are the pics I shared earlier that are already completely:

This makes three squares done and all the borders around the squares!  This means one third of the quilt is done!  Yippie!

I hope all my blogging friends are doing well.  I have been busy working full time and overtime, thus not getting much blogging done!   Overtime to pay for rennovating our kitchen plus with the three kids in college every extra $$ going out as fast as it comes in!
