Okay, who knows better than I that Timothy is my Treasured Only Child. And as such deserves to be showered with gifts and love. I gave him the Barbara Brackman Civil War quilt last Christmas as a flimsy. Now it is quilted a la Baptist Fan, again by Ms. Dena the Longarmer.
Minus only the binding, it is practically ready to turn over to him. But it's going to be very hard to let it go; it's one of my favorite quilts ever. Oh well, his life needs to coalesce into some sort of ongoing pattern first, anyway, so I still have some time before I must deliver on my generous (apparently not very well developed) instincts :-).

These are four vintage Kewpie quilt blocks; aren't they adorable. I don't know which is the cutest, the one about to jump off the diving board or the one whose foot is about to get touched by a butterfly, or the one dancing to the radio, or the one playing the musical instrument. I built out the blocks with feedsack fabrics, then sashed it with vintage plain feedsacks.
Lifetime is filming part of a TV movie about June Carter Cash entitled "Ring of Fire" across the street from me! In one of our midcentury modern homes. Their particular home has some really cute retro touches, like floor-to-ceiling windows around an interior courtyard and of course the wooden ceilings and beams.
