Dutch Roses

Well, last week turned out to be a bit wild with the flooding and mudslides in Southern BC, and I didn’t find the time to write another post. While we were not affected by the water directly, we couldn’t get out of Chilliwack for a few days because all the roads were closed, and I had to postpone an urgent medical appointment in Abbotsford until we finally made it there driving the Lougheed Highway on Friday.

Another week, another chance, and I am feeling much calmer now, so back to our regularly scheduled program. I am way behind in posting pictures, all of these I am posting right now were actually quilted a year ago. This is the next of Sharon’s quilts. After her first one was such a success, she set out to make quilts for her family for Christmas and probably broke a record in speed sewing. For this lovely blue and white quilt she chose “Melange” as the quilting design.

    I am very happy that you were able to finally get out and get the medical care that you needed.
    I find that sometimes the simplest quilts are so very beautiful and comforting. A few years back my daughter and I did 17 simple quilts between Thanksgiving and we finished the last one on Christmas Eve! We did charm pack quilts and jelly roll quilts for my grandchildren and her husband’s nieces and nephews. I was really surprised and so very happy to see how much the kids all loved them and still use them.

    A lovely quilt and quilting pattern. I’m so glad you didn’t have to postpone the doctor too long. That’s always scary, as is flooding!
