Nice Charity Quilt and New Artwork

I just had time yesterday afternoon to quilt another little charity quilt for Capital Quilters Guild Quilts on Wheels program. These are made for rest home residents in wheelchairs.

The top was completed for the guild's "Iron Chef" challenge, in which the maker was required to use a bag of "ugly" fabrics and at least one block from last year's Block Party. I thought this one was very soft and pretty, and look at all those half-square triangles!

I used one of Suzanne Earley's Meandering Magic designs, featuring a leaf and ribbon.

We went to our son Dave and his wife Emily's house with my dad last night. He presented them with a sketch that he began last year on our vacation to Sunset Beach. He did it while we were all sitting on the beach in the afternoon sun.

Then, it was off to dinner at The Bavarian Brathaus of Cary, which we all enjoyed!
