Cold January

During Quilting
After my cat bite injury, surgery, and IV antibiotics, it is great to get back to quilting. This is the second "jelly roll race" quilt that Linda and I are working on. I have it quilted all but the borders and binding. The beginning of it is pictured in my blog post of November 28, 2018.

The first of the two is made of jelly roll bandana fabrics with black squares placed randomly.

Here is the bandana quilt ready for quilting:

I was given a box of sewing supplies dating back to the 1970s and 1980s. There were the expected spools of thread, pins, scissors, bobbins and one curious plastic jointed tape labeled Sleeve Former by Roberta F Bush, who had patented this tool in 1976.

Linda and I have had fun with hair color this fall/winter. My blue is several weeks old, but Linda had her purple done just before this picture was made.
