Mission Accomplished Times Two

Today, I picked Milo up from pre-school and delivered the quilt for the silent auction this week-end. Tomorrow night, we will have a family dinner out and then go to the opening reception for the art show and sale. If you are in Portland and want to drop by, e-mail me and I will send you the location of the gallery. The reception is 7 – 10 pm, tomorrow night and the show continues on Saturday, 11am – 2 pm. Here is the finished quilt:


Here is a closeup of some of the art work which was scanned and printed on fabric. The second one is Milo’s. The theme of the drawings was Your Favorite Season. Miles says his drawing is of himself dressed like a viking playing in the sun.



Here is the back – which is a cozy green flannel.


I also finished knitting Milo’s sweater. It seems that cold weather is conducive to curling up with your knitting.

    Greetings from NH. I came across your blog and loved it. I got a quilt like that 25 years ago when I was expecting my daughter and working in a school! How time flies. Hope you can check out my blog.

    The quilt is wonderful! And so is the sweater. Please tell me that was self-striping yarn. I can’t imagine weaving in that many ends.

    What a beautiful quilt! Some lucky soul will be very happy looking at it each day! I’m sure it will be well loved.

    Someone will end up with a real treasure! I wish I had something like this from my children’s early school days…what a great heirloom to pass from generation to generation.

    What a good grandma you are. Hope the quilt is a huge success at the silent auction. I made a quilt like that once long ago, only mine had little kids’ handprints all over it. Fun!

  7. You have been a busy bee! It all looks so good — and snuggly. I thought of you this morning after I dropped my girl off at Kindergarten as her Kindergarten and the one down the street are both decked out for Xmas and will have their own little markets this weekend. The halls smell like fresh baked cookies and everything is so cheerful!
