Strip Quilt.

We make a habit of eating out on Tuesdays and Thursdays; I each Tai Chi, then we grab a bite to eat, and in the evening we play either cards or dominoes with our friends.  It's a good routine.  One of the places we frequent is a "hamburger joint", with counter service.  You order at the counter, someone serves you, and your food comes on a plate and you have normal silverware.  There's a full menu, something for everyone.  The people who work there are great, and they greet us with, "Hi Bob and Janice."

One of the young women who works there is a single mom, and a great gal.  She played soccer as a youth and now her daughter does, too.  This quilt is for her daughter.  I was making all these other quilts for different kids and I thought I'd make one for her, too.  The back is kind of crazy;  I managed to work in two soccer prints.  I love the flower quilting on this one.  With so much white on the quilt top and back, it really pulls it all together.

May your bobbins always be full,


  1. Sounds like a great and fun place. And I love the quilt!
