First, I have to say my hubby is set to have his treatments for his cancer and all are to be done in the next 2 weeks. The preliminary scans and markers are done. These appointments are draining, yet I do nothing. We wait around till he has to go and then I wait while he goes through the procedures.
What I have learned is that we are blessed. The Prohealth Care Cancer center is wonderful. The staff is nothing more than positive and helpful. The facility is very nice with beverages available and books and a jigsaw puzzle waiting to be put together. Even the music is relaxing. Talking with the other spouses of patients has made me realize that we are younger than most; and that we are lucky. Some are going on 5 years of treatments or 3rd degree burns.
I got right on my goals for July and August and got this baby quilted.
This quilt is only 25 inches square: with each little square only an inch finished.
I had the perfect Christmas quilt for the back and binding in my stash.
Then I ordered these tumbler blocks on my facebook group. It was nice on only have something to lay out and put together. Now for quilting it. I think it will just leave it for a table covering. Each tumbler is about 2 by 3 inches
But I had to also show a couple quilts from my guild meeting on Wednesday.
I showed this Escher quilt being put together back in January. The designer came to share his trunk show mostly for his family of kids and grandkids. He was a former kindergarten teacher and then mentor for teachers. This is one of his original layouts. You can get or order a kit of Kaffe fabrics for this at Quiltagious in Mukwonago, WI. This has 3 colorways and an additional 3 D setting.
I loved this one which is a variation of a Storm at Sea quilt called Woven Ribbons. He said he used Deb Tucker's templates for the diamond in a square and square in a square. ( also for sale as a kit from Quiltagious.)
