Hope you get a chance to quilt today. It's International Quilting Day!
I made this little quilt a few days ago in order to test my machine. It still wasn't working right the last time I got it back from the repair guy. I had trouble with the bottom thread when I was machine appliqueing, quilting and sewing on bindings. It just wouldn't pick up the bottom thread, so I tested it and double tested it and it seems okay now.
This little quilt is based on a wall hanging called, "Celebrate Each Day' and it is part of the 'Backdoor Quilt Series' by Cottage Creek Quilts. I bought it about 7 years ago in order to contribute to breast cancer research. I didn't make the whole wall hanging as the pattern stated. Mine is sort of a Journal Quilt, only a bit longer. It measures 8.5 by 13.5 inches. I guess it is sort of fitting that this was a breast cancer quilt since my DH has just been diagnosed with the male equivalent, prostate cancer. He goes for radiation treatments next week. Perhaps you can send prayers and healing thoughts his way. Thanks!
