First off, a huge thank you to all my readers for their support of my Titanium Security Series! To be honest I’m kind of stunned at the reception the books have received so far–stunned in the best way possible :).
I’m slowly but surely making headway on Burned, Sean and Zahra’s story but of course with my boys home all summer I don’t have as much time at the computer as I do when they’re in school. I also promised both of them I’d make them each a quilt to fit their beds. My 9 year old wanted a Minecraft quilt so last week I got out a piece of graph paper and drew up the quilt top on it for a “creeper” design.
On Monday afternoon I took the boys with me to the fabric shop and bought all the material for the top, then I went home and got busy cutting and piecing. On Tuesday I went back for the border fabric and bought the backing, batting and binding material as well. I used a black “minkee” fabric for the backing, layered and quilted the whole thing and finally put on the binding. Hand stitching the binding onto the backing to finish on Thursday took almost as long as it did to make the quilt top, but I can say beyond doubt that this quilt was handmade with love.
Luckily, big weasel was thrilled with it. I told him even if Minecraft is no longer “the” thing when he goes off to college, too bad, he still has to take it with him :).
I’ll be starting little weasel’s quilt next week but first I’ve got to make a serious dent in the draft of Sean and Zahra’s story!
