This is a quick tropical quilt. I used 6 inch squares with white sashing. It is quilted with a tropical flower/pineapple design in red thread, top and bobbin. It is a twin/large couch size with polyester batting.
It is very windy here today, my ds says, "the trees are dancing". He came inside last night after having a mudball fight with big sister. He was covered in mud and sand and had the biggest frown. When I asked what was wrong, he just stuck out his lip further. Finally he said that when he asked her to stop she wouldn't and had gotten mud is his mouth, see? He said he wanted a hot shower to wash the mud away. He jumped in the tub, and soon was clean and pink again. What a cutie! He was so sad, I just couldn't take his picture.
The bolts are dwindling at my lqs, shelves are being emptied, the notions wall is close to bare. It is hard to believe she will be closed. What to do? The next closest quilt shop is 120 miles from here. I will miss getting together with quilty friends there for a workshop, or just in passing. When you live in such a small town, every business is so important. Every shop that closes is another service we have to drive to get. During the dark winters, you need a place to go other than where you are, it gets so depressing. Darn it. I'm so sorry to see the shop close its door.
