Not really among the missing.............. just seems that way because I post so seldom. Life can be pretty mundane a lot of the time and I don't think you want to hear about it every time I do laundry, wash the dishes, clean the bathroom or vacum up the cat hair, do you?  Didn't think so.  I just haven't been very motivated this summer to do a lot else. I've sewed a little but not enough to always have something to show in a post. I've read a few books, some page turners, others I struggled through. I've worked very little on genealogy and I know my profile says I like to do digital scrapbooking but the most I've done there is collect freebies off the Internet. There you have it. Booooring!!

But now......halleluja.......I've finished something I can show, even though they're not mine.  I finally got these two old tops quilted and bound.

They turned out pretty well, maybe not exactly square, but then they weren't made that way to start with. The second one is my favorite and has several fabrics in it that I would dearly love to have a yard or two of (I think I mentioned that in an earlier post) and they both have wonderful navy blues with tiny white figures. And they were truly made with the maker's scraps. The pieces in the blocks of the first one aren't very big but some of them were cut from pieces that had been pieced two or three times to make them big enough.  How many of us would bother doing that now? Definitely a case of "use it up."

I have a few old tops of my own and working on these has me ready to dig them out and finish them up. I think that would make their makers happy.
