Have A Latte Blog Hop. My Day

Welcome!

Thank you to Madam Samm and Joan at Moose Stash Quilting . Both ladies abound with joyful encouragement and support.  I have seen beautiful projects during this Hop. I hope you visit all the participants.


My projects are a very dotty wall hanging and snack mat. The red orange paisley fabric is from my stash.  I usually sew with bright primary colors. This was a change and I grew fond of these prints.  




Both items are lined with warm and natural batting. They are crinkled because I chose not to pre-wash the batting. I like the effect.  I will be ordering more of this fabric to make a small remembrance quilt honoring my sister. That girl loved her coffee! I will be using the prints in my photo plus the red and border fabrics.

Thank you for visiting. Today`s list of participants is below the picture.

  14. Sweet colors and perfect to help remember your coffee loving sister. My you have had so much loss in such a short span of time yet you have responded with grace and courage. Your loved ones would be proud especially your husband. I'm so happy to see each project you make for I know it is helping you in living your "new normal". It amazes me to think you live so close to the Grand Canyon almost in your back yard. I did not know they took your camera from you in that one certain area!? I've been doing some reading on your blog...very interesting btw.
    I have enjoyed your Latte project and my visit here at Cates Linens.

    1. Thank you. I`m just moving on a day at a time. The grief is not as bad as last year. I keep busy. Sewing is very helpful and I have outdoors projects. I`m in the process of dismantling our old travel trailer..

      The west end of Grand Canyon is a few miles away. It`s not Park Service land. It`s the Hualapai Reservation where the Skywalk is built. The Hualapai take your camera and keep it secure. They don`t allow picture taking. I prefer the South Rim, just a few dollars a carload, it`s prettier too. It takes your breath away. Than you Gmama Jane

  16. Those are really pretty... YOU DID A WONDERFUL JOB!!!
    You did intrigue me a bit...people wash the batting before they quilt it? I have been quilting for a while, but have never heard anyone mention that before...please do tell...
    How does it affect the quilting?

  17. Everyone could use a snack mat with coordinating wall hanging, especially for their favorite spot for a little pick me up. Look forward to your special remembrance quilt. Sisters are special, for sure.
