Cristine's Bosties in progress

I finished A Study in Stripes for co-worker Wanda S. I delivered it to her today. She was so surprised! She knew about the quilt but thought it was for co-worker Judy B., who will retire tomorrow. It was so fun to surprise Wanda.

Once again, I’m picking up Cristine’s Bosties, a quilt for my housekeeper Cristine. I haven’t touched this quilt in a few weeks. Two finished blocks disappeared from church about a month ago, and still haven’t been returned. I don’t have enough of a couple of the fabrics to re-create the missing blocks, but with some substituting I can still make blocks that will work just fine. I hope to finish the quilt this weekend.

In my head: Habitat Challenge for Sacramento Modern Quilt Guild. I have an idea, and I’ll begin really working on it next week after I finish Cristine’s Bosties.

Due late October: Frog quilt for co-worker Sara, who is leaving the office to become a stay-at-home mom. Good for her! I was able to stay at home with my kids when they were small, my daughter-in-law stays home with my young granddaughters, and I say if you can do it, do it.

The frog quilt will be made up mostly of squares in scrappy greens, with one large square from a panel; the square features a really cute, really big frog and will occupy a lower corner of the quilt. I remembered and found a fat quarter that I’ve had for upteen years that has lily pads and tiny frogs. I plan to cut it up into a few squares and scatter them among the scrappy greens. I don’t expect the quilt to take long…maybe a week.
