I have been sewing together some of those not-so-first-class batik strips I showed on the blog. I have now a possible 1/4 of the quilt top. I may just leave them as strips, or I may "bargello-ize" them. I'll see how I'm feeling about it when I have finished four strip sets.
I am getting my impetus from a family in need that my daughter's family adopted in St. Louis. Two kids didn't have beds, but were sleeping on the floor, so Marti's family bought them beds. When I asked her about bedding, she said they couldn't afford to do any more! Well, what I meant was, "Do they need quilts?" She didn't really know, but her husband immediately said, "Quilts would show love, that somebody else cared about them."
And Finn, who give the challenge on finishing UFOs for the end of 2009, has graciously asked if she can join ME in the Two a Month UFO Finish goal for 2010. Well, gosh, of course she can! She has inspired me for two years. Glad to have the company!
Anybody else want to take this on as a goal? Got some flimsies that need a push?
