Some Progress at our House

I finished the quilt for my daughter's co-worker. It is pretty basic but I think will make a welcome gift with the addition of several burp cloths.



A few years ago, my great white hunter made me a rack for my rulers. Since then my collection has grown and I asked him if he could make me a longer one with a couple more grooves in it. This one just fits on top of the book shelf where I keep my quilting books. I will use the first one he made for the smaller odds and ends of rulers that I keep in a drawer. He did a wonderful job, he has a lot of pride in his woodworking, no short cuts on anything.



Here it is with the rulers in place. It is just sitting waiting for me to use one of them..........and waiting and waiting. You would think with all these great tools to work with, I would be pumping out the quilts. You would think............

Wonderful ruler holder! We have a man in town who made one for his wife, and now he makes a lot and sells them at the LQS. So if your husband wants to go into business...
It's a sweet baby quilt, I'm sure they'll love it!

That blanket will snuggle that baby just right...remember the love you put into it.

Wooden ruler holder looks great...just might have to ask my man to make me one.

What a pretty, cuddly quilt. What did you tie it with, Norma?

And the ruler holder looks great. I finally gave up and hung mine up, but I love your stand more.
