something I threw together




I've wanted to do a red, black and white quilt for a long time and here is one. I also wanted to do the pattern which is Triangle Tango. It's really not difficult and it was a neat technique to learn. I really thought the red, black, white quilt that I've wanted to make would go in my room. This one is for my friend, Brooke. She is the culinary arts teacher at school and a friend. She is leaving for Western Asia with the Peace Corps. I think she has made a courageous decision to leave all that is comfortable here to pursue something she feels so strongly about. The Corbett colors just happen to be red, black and white (go Cards!!) and some of the prints are specific to her; the beaters because she works in the kitchen, soccer because she coaches, exclamation points because she never shuts up!! The other side of the quilt was donated by staff members and I just put it together and gave it to her for her birthday. I've said it before, but giving handmade gifts is a great way to show love! I'll miss you Brooke!! Good luck...
I'm home alone because the guys are at a father-son campout with church. I should probably be going out and having fun with friends, but I'm going to make a chocolate milk shake and watch a movie or just read. Ahhh, there's nothing like having the house to yourself!!

Hey, favorite, rediscovered cousin, I just read your blog and it's well, it's just fabulous. I love all your quilt projects and your fun farmy stories. You know we had a goose in our shower overnight before we took it to Nogales to give my in-laws. Wow! was that a smelly experience. Stay in touch. xxo Joanne H. in Tucson
