My fingers are crossed that my machine will be fixed by next weekend so I can pick it up and begin my next project: a quilt for my baby sister's birthday coming up the end of February.
Eleanor is the little one in front... she was 10 months when this photo was taken.
I'm the one holding on to her.
Eleanor is a long-time military wife (now retired military) and has made homes in a number of different locations around the country. When I saw the Hometown line by Sweetwater for Moda... I knew what fabric I needed for her quilt.
In this photo, there are four towns where Eleanor has lived or lived near, worked, given birth, etc. I've not done a closer inspection.... I'll leave that for the birthday girl! This fabric will be the backing for the quilt.
Eleanor loves red so I chose all the beautiful reds from the Hometown line.
I cut out the fabrics yesterday afternoon.... now I just need to pick up my machine next weekend!
