Thanks to everyone for your inquiries and well wishes. My knee is much improved after cortisone, lots of rest and ice. This morning I went up to the studio and put some borders on my niece's quilt. One more and it will be ready for the LA.
While my sister and I are in the mood to be generous, we decided to make a quilt for our other niece that is graduating from a Medical Assistant program next week. She likes black and white so Julie picked up Mark Lipinski's Califon.
It is really pretty in the black & white colorway. We are going to do another "Four on the Floor" but this will be double bed size. Rather than spend the big bucks on yards and yards of backing, I am going to cheat and pick up 108" wide backing fabric from Joann's with a 40% off coupon. They have a white on white that should work.
I will not get any sewing done this weekend until maybe late Sunday afternoon. My friends from Virginia and New York are coming for a "girl's weekend". They are not quilters. Maybe I can lure one or two of them over to the dark side...
