Quiltin' Bee!

Today after I dropped The Youngun off at school I went to my friend Darlin' Deb's house. You may remember Darlin' Deb as my lovely friend that took care of the homestead so that we could go on our vacation to Florida. Deb is alot like me. She plants a garden, she cans food, and she loves to QUILT!! She is the only girlfriend I've ever had that enjoyed doing those things. She's a blessing to me and I love her! Anyway, enough with the mushy stuff!

I got to her house right at 8 AM and we chatted and quilted and sipped our hot drinks and before I knew it it was 1 PM! We just had the loveliest time! I also got to see some really lovely old photos of Deb's dad, which was really very neat.
This is Deb's quilt.
The actual DEB is rather camera shy and wouldn't let me take a picture of her working on the quilt, so I had to settle for just the quilt. Deb isn't sure what she's going to do with this quilt, it is large enough to fit on a full sized bed and the colors are just gorgeous. We were discussing today how the tan fabric really looks like suede.
This is my quilt. I've been working on it off and on for a couple months now. I should be able to be finished with it by Friday. I could quilt on it all day tomorrow and have it done, but I do have other stuff I've got to do as well! Can't just sit and quilt all darned day now can I? This quilt is a gift for a friend who is expecting his first child. I've got another quilt top ready to go as soon as this one is finished. I do have to make a little confession..........DEB pieced her quilt herself...........I didn't. I chose the fabrics and the pattern and my mom pieced mine. I know, I know, I've got to learn to piece one myself. That's my next goal, to piece my own. It's just so darned much easier to say....Here Mom, piece this for me wouldja? LOL!
Till next time................GOD BLESS FROM GOODWIFE FARM!
