The fabric the 9 patch blocks are laying on is from Blue Hill Fabrics - Sara's Stash. I picked it up at Whittle's on the trip to Florida. They aren't far off I-65 in Kentucky. I also stopped at the Speed Art Museum's exhibit of the Bingham-Miller collection in Louisville (sidebar). Great diversion for a day in the car.
If you're following my Featherweight drama, no resolution yet. I'm using my mom's 1951 Singer 15-91 portable machine - beautiful stitch, but the thing weighs a ton. Portable? - I don't think so!
I just pulled my bed quilt from the dryer, so a good time to post pics. Shadow, my old black cat, lays on the quilt every night, so I don't want to change out my bed quilt for something that suits me better. This quilt was made for an on-line Labor Day quilt retreat years ago. I wasn't fond of the top until it was machine quilted by Fat Quarter Quilt Farm - Susan's stitching art made me love the quilt. The border picture is the closest to actual color.

The last thing I have to share is a recently inherited (unfortunately, but not my Grandma - she's been gone for years) needlepoint picture made by my Grandma Flo. I remember visiting with her in the backyard while she worked on this piece. The yarns were so close in shade, she worked in natural sunlight to follow the color chart. The camera won't render a sharp image due to the needlepoint texture. It will find a spot of honor to remind me of my Grandma every day.
