My quilting and blogging have been on the back burner for a few months but a recent road trip has stirred my interest again. I had a trunk load of heavy items I wanted to deliver to Jules’ children and a friend in Baltimore I wanted to visit. So my mom and I packed the car and headed north on I-95. My dear friend Onitta was such a support to me during Jules’ illness so I took her a quilt (which I happened to make in 2006–just where my quilt history on this blog left off). My mom hand quilted it so it was a gift from both of us.
This quilt was the beginning of my rectangle series from Successful Scrap Quilts from Simple Rectangles by Judy Turner and Margaret Rolfe. Also that year were quilts for my cousin Wanda in Wyoming and my friend Donna in Atlanta. I will be making a trip to Atlanta soon and will try to remember to get a photo of Donna’s finished quilt!
