Out for delivery

     Once again, I got a call for a comfortquilt that had to go out of town with someone who was flying out Labor Day. I have a lot of tops to choose from, but not quilted. I pushed myself to quilt on the longarm, get the bag put together, the card, the book and the pocket quilts. After washing and sewing the label on, I delivered it to the person who will ferry it along. I don't know where it is going, but it is to a woman who does not have a very good cancer diagnosis. I hope the exploding squares and quilting take her mind off it for a bit and let her gather her thoughts.
I just love striped bindings. Hard to find stripes, buy them when I see them.
