I'm almost embarrassed to tell you about my latest find from the
cabinets in my Hidey Hole,
but confession is good for the soul, right??
Six years ago, yes... SIX!.... my goddaughter
(the one who was married in May)
asked me to help her with a school project.
She is very artistic and had to make a project for a class
her Senior year of high school.
I can't remember what the theme was or what the project was supposed
but she asked if I would help her make a quilt.
Of Course I would!
She came over and went through my fabric stash and found
fabrics she wanted to use
and away we went.
My goddaughter had sewn some,
so she did a great job putting this quilt top together.
She received an "A" for her project
and was really happy with the results.
Then it came back to me to quilt.
And there it sat....
hidden in a cabinet.
OH, I'd find it every once in a while
and remember that I needed to get it quilted,
but back into the cabinet it went.
My goddaughter never said anything about it,
but her mom asked about it recently.
Wow! How could I have NOT quilted it in all of these years?
Last week I pulled it out,
found some backing fabric,
pin basted it,
It didn't take long to quilt once I sat down to do it.
Maybe it was waiting until I could quilt feathers into it?
Six years ago it would have been straight line quilting all the way.
I don't know why we do this....
start something and not finish it for years.
How often, when we do finish it, do we say"Why did I wait so long?"
It is finished and will be delivered to her this week.
She doesn't know I've finished it,
so, hopefully, will have nice surprise.
Hopefully she remembers making it!
I picked these from my garden last night.
They are the biggest zinnia's I have ever seen!
