I enjoyed the detailed brickwork of the historic churches, the many statues, the granite curbs.

The mother-to-be would prefer the yellow-and-white quilt so I laid it out again and stitched the top. Here's the first and final arrangements. Who'd have thought such small changes in the placement of these soft blocks would make any difference? But they do to me.

Another treat was using the featherweight to quilt the yellow and white string top. Parallel organic lines kept it simple. After a quick wash and dry, it fluffed up beautifully.

Just for fun, everyone put a stitch or two in the binding. That makes it a gift from the whole family!
Enjoy the day, Ann
