A quick post…..

to show you a gift I received from a dear friend in Maryland USA. Carole sent me these lovely fabrics which will go very well in my Civil War Quilt. Also a delightful pattern for 3 table runners.
I also finished knitting a cotton  cardi for my Grand-daughter Jenna. It seems long but she is very slim and tall, so I’m hoping it’ll do her for a year or so.

There was no wind this morning, so quickly took a photo. Of course the quilt was too big and had to drape on the lawn.

Now I can bundle it off to the Quilter. It’s so nice to get another job nearly finished.:-)
Thanks for dropping by

Wow! great effort to complete that quilt top, it's going to look great quilted!! Love the fabrics you received too, love that line 'CW Reunion', never did get any of that when it first came out, but I did recently order a Fat Eighth bundle of it, so I can use some of it for the extra CW blocks I have to make!! Great little cardi too, so sweet when they are that size!!!

Your quilt is looking stunning! As too your knitting...lucky girl. Your gift is also divine, I have the same pattern and have made the star table runner several times, it's very effective and versitile. Can't wait to see which one you choose to make first.
