WIP Wednesday

I've been really busy working on a certain quilt, and I'm so excited to show it...but not until next week. So when I finished that quilt, I got the back finished for "My Granny is Amish."

I'm going to hand quilt it with perle cotton and if I can somehow get it done by the end of the month, I think I'll submit it to C&T Publishing, which has a call for submissions to celebrate its 30th anniversary with a book on Amish and Amish-inspired quilts.
Bad lighting--the black really is black...
Gabriel turned 11 months. And I finished Ruby's 8-month postcard too, but I haven't sent it yet so you are only subjected to one bad poem.
You still have time to comment for a chance to win a pattern by Cluck Cluck Sew.

Thanks, Lee, for hosting us again this week. Welcome back!

Your Amish quilt is looking lovely. I'm submitting one too but it's an older one that I made up when Roberta Horton first had her book out.

And I'm loving your postcards, even though you say they are "bad rhymes." Not so, Shakespeare!!

That is so sweet that you send those postcards to your grandkids. My parents send a monthly package to mine with a handwritten note, a book, and a few craft supplies and my kids look forward to it every month!
