Baltimore Orioles

This month the Orioles fail to make it to the AL playoff. But I was happy the went farther than last year. I was first disappointed by the Los Angeles Dodgers not able to get a wild card slot. Then I told myself, I still had one more team to root for, Baltimore Orioles. Now that the Orioles are out I guess I can focus on football. At least until the World Series starts.
So, I will wait again another year in hopes the Dodgers plays the Orioles in the World Series next year.
I can hope, can I??

Grandmother Garden Quilt

Hooray!!! I finally finished the Grandmother's Garden Quilt. I think it looks good. I did simple diagonal quilting in the center and free motion leaves on the border. I chose to use fleece as my backing. This controls the weight of the quilt and gives it a soft feel to the user.  I have spent many years completing this quilt. I have a special bond with it and yet I will feel sad when I depart with as it is up for sale.
