A finish and progress

 I finished my mom's quilt on Saturday and gifted it that evening. She loves it but I was ready to be done with it.

I appliqued six butterflies in random spots to cover all the errors in the quilt top. I purchased it on Ebay. There was nothing I could do to fix the crooked seams and blocks short of taking it apart and I was not about to do that. So my name will not go onto this quilt. 

After this ordeal I needed some instant gratification so I made this super simple table runner for Summer.

It could even be used for Independence day.

I also worked in some landscaping out front where I had 30 year old bushes removed and ...

made another table runner for Independence Day.

All in all it was a very productive week. 

In between all these finishes I also kept up the hand quilting on the cathedral quilt. It is very relaxing to hand quilt. 

Have a blessed weekend my friends.
