Quilt” is derived from the Latin word culcita, which means “stuffed sack.”
The earliest depiction of quilting was discovered in Egypt; it was an ivory figurine of a pharaoh wearing quilted clothing, ca. 3400 BC
Well they say it’s fall time but I’m not really ready to believe that yet as it is still very much like summer here! And dry, we are in what I’ve just learned a flash drought.
So with this flash drought ,I have no grass to cut,or weed whacking to do, it’s been in the upper 90’s to 100’s so I decided to keep my nose inside as much as possible.
Welcome back quilting!👏👏
Here’s where I was …. working in the two center blocks
Finished those two blocks,and quilted the last two ,along with the border.
Closer look at the quilting
Ready for another row of blocks. There’s a little bit of looseness in the blocks but the quilting seems to handle it okay.
That’s it for me this around.😊
