Just another knitting blog with a little bit of quilting thrown in! Of late, I should say a quilting blog with a little bit of knitting thrown in.

Pieced And Basted
So I spent yesterday afternoon piecing a half-square triangle quilt for the grand baby. I didn't have a pattern in mind initially, but had a charm pack of solids and pulled some colors out. It's a simple design and went together rather quickly.
My sister always says that every quilt has a story. If this quilt could talk it would be telling a story of a very bad dog, Rosie. While I was sewing, she was busy destroying everything she could get her paws or mouth on. Oh well! There's always another day to get it quilted; at least it's basted and ready for quilting.
I can't wait to hand bind it over the weekend while watching the Olympic Games. Go USA!
