Work In Progress Wednesday: Rail Fence Blues Quilt

It’s time for the mad dash to finish Christmas presents! Most years, I make a big stack of Christmas gift bags, but this year it looks like real quilts all the way.

On the spur of the moment, I decided to make a quilt for a nun at my daughter’s high school who has been a wonderful friend to my girl. Sister Mary told me her favorite color is blue, so blue it is!

Here’s a look at the quilt in progress. I have made all the blocks and sewed them into rows. And my back is killing me! I wish someone taught a class on the proper way to sit at the sewing machine without crippling yourself. Still, I’m pleased with my progress. Another long day and this quilt should be ready to go.

    I’ve been working on a blue quilt for quite some time, I feel it is all I see in quilts now! And my lower back is so tight and pained today I haven’t done any sewing…definitely need to work on my posture as well. I’m sure Sister Mary will be very grateful for your thoughtful gift and the time and love you put into it :-)

      I have a lot of blue fabric, so it was easy for me to find something that I hope Sister Mary will like. I think she will be surprised to get this quilt, at any rate! There are so many people quietly doing good in the world. It’s one of the luxuries of my life that I can sometimes give them something I make with my own hands.
