Fall Orange Peel

April’s UFO (and my oldest one) is finally finished. It’s a few weeks late but I knew I’d get it done before May was over.

I don’t know exactly when Mom pieced the top for me but the Mid Atlantic Quilt show was still in Williamsburg at the time. From the time Mom and I started quilting in the Fall of 2000, we always attended the quilt show. I’ve missed a couple years but I don’t think Mom has and now it’s usually a family event with my sister Ann, my Aunt, my cousin Mary, and this year her daughters attended with us too.

It’s been rainy here today with intermittent storms so I haven’t wanted to turn on the longarm. I did get the binding made and stitched to the Framed Rectangles and I’ve read/cuddled with Chesty a bit too. Now it looks like it’s clearing up so I’ll head downstairs and load the next top. It feels really good to be making progress on these UFO’s and on the donation tops I have here.

    Love the brown “edging” the binding makes! Was just looking today and thinking there must be a few in your pile to be bound as there have been a few quilted that I haven’t seen the finished version of. Any news on your tiny quilts that you sent for Alzheimers fundraising? Have they been sold yet?
