It’s time to send my quilt off to Visions for final approval and photography for the book. But when I finally got around to packing it up, I suddenly realized that the one selected was the second cartoon quilt I made, and I wasn’t happy with the binding or the hanging sleeve. So I had to redo all that before shipping.
This little Chinese boy is a ceramic planter that has followed me around forever although I’ve often tried to get rid of it, until I thought to make him into a needle cushion. Now he keeps me company when I do hand-sewing. I wonder what’s in his bowl – not watermelon seeds, in case you’re wondering. That’s just the back of the quilt.
