Another healing quilt and other good news

 Sadly, another person I know is undergoing serious treatments and I immediately sent her a quilt to cuddle under.  She's a quilter but I'm sure receiving a healing quilt will perk her right up!  I really did labor over this pattern and love the quilt.  I also love pink and brown together.

In other quilting news, I've been working slowly on the Moda Sampler Spree project.  It calls for 10 blocks a week, which is not entirely realistic for me but I'm plugging along.  These are my aqua blocks.  I love that color -- my new favorite!

And I just finished the latest installment, which called for green (one of my least favorite colors)!  I have one more to finish as well as the optional appliqué block. I think I moved the majority of my green fabric up to Oregon so I was pretty limited.  I love lime greens and they are in Oregon.

You may notice the one on the bottom left is a little crinkly.  It fell off my design wall and my puppy (all 65 lbs of him) grabbed it immediately and was sucking it with great delight. UGH.

Before we left our house in Sunriver, I had to take a picture of a bush I planted a few years ago that's just doing so well.  It's a real miracle that the deer don't gobble it up but maybe there's a scent they don't like.  It's a delphinium and I got it at Wal-Mart, so there you go.  

We are enjoying having our grandkids visit us while we are in California, although honestly the lakes and my kayak are calling my name!

Hope everyone has a great weekend.


  1. What an amazing gift to your friend! Your quilt is just perfect for her...great flower color, don't you think??

  2. Sorry to hear about your friend's rough patch. Hope all will go well for her. It's a gorgeous quilt you gave her. I'm sure she loves it. You need to play with two decks of cards; one stash in California and the other in Oregon. Your flowers are gorgeous. Love your little bicycle too. So cute! ;^)

  3. That beautiful quilt is sure to bring comfort, Randy!!

  4. I love your sampler spree in turquoise, Randy!! It is really lovely...
    Hugs, julierose

  5. So kind of you to gift that beautiful quilt. I'm sure she will love it.
    Your blocks are looking great - you've made so many!
    I adore delphinium. I could never get it going in Illinois and I didn't try in NJ. It likes Sunriver!!!

  6. Absolutely beautiful quilt! I too love pink and brown together. What a wonderful gift.

  7. So sorry about your friend. That quilt would cheer anyone up! WHat a wonderful thing to do. I love your delphinium!! I am so far behind in blog reading and posting and commenting. I feel like a slug!

  8. Wow! I never seen such a lovely delphinium! You are obviously doing something right.
