The Train Keeps a Rollin'

Howdy! I haven't been this ill since 1995! Still trying to get well, but it is slow-going. Saturday was the first day I had enough energy to go into the sewing room and work on the RTC quilt. I found this very cool paisley (I never met a paisley I didn't like, even during the 60's!) for the border. I ran out of energy pretty quickly, but went back yesterday and found the perfect backing, quilted it and handsewed the binding on while watching "The Trouble with Tribbles" episode from the original Star Trek TV show. I just LOVE Ohura!! Was she not a totally cool chic?

Then, whaddya know? I finally decided on the block pattern for Kyle's quilt! It is Massachusetts Cross & Crown, which I found in a Marsha McCloskey book ("On to Square One [or was that Two?]"). the only problem: I need more light background fabric. Or maybe not.

We were freaked about the shootings at NIU, but I got an e-mail from a friend who is a Sociology professor there and we were quite relieved to hear from her! She did not know the shooter, but many of her colleagues did. I hope she remains safe there! Of course, if there are armed security guards in our public high schools, I wonder what makes us think the college campuses are safe. Hmmm.

Bundle up babies! Winter won't last much longer! xxoo P

My Humble Opinion: The Massachusetts Cross & Crown
pattern is just great the way you have it need for more light fabric!
