Another finished quilt top is on the design wall!
This is the "Up Up and Away" pattern from the book Sunday Morning Quilts. This is a great book, and I can hardly wait to read Cheryl Atkinson's next book called "A Month of Sundays".
You can read about the "accidental" beginning of this quilt here when I was at quilt retreat in February. Thanks to my "secret sister" (Jake... who's not a secret anymore!) and to Marjorie for their contributions to this quilt!
I have two wedding quilts on the go that I should be working on but just can't tear myself away from this project. I tell myself that I need to finish this because I need a small portable hand quilting project (this is the perfect size tote-along project since it is a baby quilt) to take back and forth to the hospital when I am at my brother's.
However this is not really the truth since I have a lot of hand stitching projects on the go, but this, my friends, is the face of quilting addiction!!! LOL
AND as soon as I finished stitching the top together, I started pin basting so that I could start quilting right away. Oh my...I just love how it turned out!
We have lots of hospital visits each week since my brother is having chemotherapy for his lungs and radiation for his spine. The cancer continues to spread in spite of this aggressive treatment regime.
Hopefully this quilt will raise our spirits with all the happy colours and uplifting theme ;)
