I'm really not intending
I just did my first

OK, just rounding out

OK, just rounding out 2002 in this lengthy, multiple entry, again with the intention that I'll figure out how to put the pix in a gallery eventually. This is a small lap quilt I made for my dear friend Elizabeth for Christmas. When I visited her in September 2001 and was working on the 100 Good Wishes quilt pictured below, I had to run to Wal-Mart (it was the only option in her tiny college town) for some more muslin, and bought us each a tidy stack of "fat quarters," with the suggestion that we each make something for the other from the fabrics. She presented me with a beautiful crazy-quilt pillow for my 2002 birthday; it took me to the end of the year to return the gesture. I called this one Lizzi's Blues (& Matt's), because she got engaged while I was making it. The title alludes to a short film she & I made in 2000, Fishin' Blues (& Pinks). Their four initials are stitched on the corner squares. I ordered this pattern from Keepsake Quilting.
