Baptist Fans on Churn Dashes?
I love the adorable little scallop border printed along the edge of the fabric. (Click on the photo to enlarge if you want to see it in detail.) Of course, it's an extra inch or so of unusable fabric -- at least if you want to use it for quilt backing and have it match the rest of the quilt. On the other hand, it might be a great ruffle for a little granddaughter's dress....
Speaking of my granddaughter, she and her family were here for a week's visit in May. I'm teaching both of those children early about sewing and quilting.
Here's Olivia sitting with me as we scrolled through my feedly reader. She was a little unsettled several evenings so while her mom was helping her brother, I invited her to learn about quilting with me. My daughter said she could see little Olivia's head moving up and down as she watched the images move down the page. I'm sure it wasn't just the photos or sitting with me that helped calm her: I asked Pandora to play some lullabies. Come to think of it, she didn't really learn much about quilting that night because she fell asleep within a few minutes. No matter, she'll have other quilting lessons the next time she visits.
It rained this afternoon -- one of those wonderful, steady, drenching rains. It was so dark at 3 p.m. that we had to put the lights on to see.
