Here's the finish of my leader and ender string quilt. Leaders and enders is just a way of sewing, where you always just feed the next thing through the machine. It's Bonnie Hunters idea, and she has a real nice book about it.
I am going to use a blanket as the batting, tie it, and give it to the homeless shelter. It is so cheerful! I love it so much, luckily I've already started another one.
Speaking of blankets, my dear mother came over one day last week while I was at work. She washed all the quilts in the washer ( which I do) and put them in the dryer, which I don't. I kept calm, but it was a near thing. I guess they will look crinkly like this forever, now. Her remark was "I washed all those home made blanket the kids sleep wit. It you want new ones that match their rugs, I'd be happy to take them to Target." I'm seriously thinking of changing my lock. It will cause an uproar, but I have really had it. I'm going to give myself a little time to cool off, and I see my best friend since forever at Maryland Sheep and Wool in two weeks, so I'm going to see what she thinks.
