Mom finished another top … I keep losing count of how many tops she’s finished since getting here but I counted them up again and this Owl top makes 5. It’s based on a Fabric Cafe pattern called Pretty Please.
I have this same owl fabric in purple so you’ll see another one of these 3 yard quilts using it eventually.
While Mom was finishing up this one, I finished cutting another one for her and started quilting the doll top. I decided to use some leftover Minky fabric on the back which was not the best decision. I had to shove and pull to get it to feed through. I’m going to end up doing minimal quilting on it which is OK, it’s a doll quilt and it will be fine. It makes me appreciate how easy it is to use Minky for backings on the longarm.
I’ve been doing a lot of cooking while Mom’s been here trying to fix her some of her favorites. Tonight we decided to make a turkey dinner. We fixed a turkey breast, broccoli casserole, dressing, and cranberry sauce and it was yummy! Tomorrow we’ll have leftovers.
