The fabric is not just velvet alone, but anything that shimmers & glistens, brocades, or something that pleased my eye. Thank you so much, Mother. And thank you to each of you for your choice of setting the squares. We chose the zig zag effect in the diagonal setting. I appreciate each of your thoughts and input in this matter.
Mother was a trooper while she was here. Some days I had to work and she just loved staying here , relaxing, reading, and sewing in the quiet of the day.
And then it was time for her to go home. We met my sister, Emily and shopped at a quilt shop in Ackerman and then zeroed in on the thrift stores along the way home. Emily has been bit by the "quilting bug" and it's great fun watching her put together fabrics. I love her taste. We decided to use a few of the same fabrics and each make something and not let the other see our end product until we both have them finished.
It's been a great week!
