Strike up the band and can I get a chorus of ‘hallelujahs’ while I’m at it because, hello, I finished a quilt!
Not being one that actually finishes anything quilt related under tight time constraints, I can at least give myself a pat on the back that I finished it this YEAR!
The greenish marbled backing is also batik. I used the ‘wrong’ side of the fabric as the right side had a really busy design. It’s the first quilt I’ve ever completely bound by machine. Me likey a lot.
Let me tell you a little about Merle. She’s one of those people who is perpetually cheerful. She’d sing the ‘Good Morning’ song and even though I’d roll my eyes and make gagging noises, I have to say…I kinda miss it. And her.
For the longest time, I couldn’t decide if it was her nature or pharmaceuticals.
The lady has mad kitchen skills. Need a cake? Here’s Merle. Breakfast, lunch, brunch, snack, dinner? Merle. Recently had a baby? Here’s Merle with casserole, salad, rolls AND dessert?! Crap, I can’t even pull that off myself on a weeknight.
Just don’t start a debate on what constitutes chili. Hint: there are NO noodles in chili.
She’s a fount of marital advice, most of which I’ve cheerfully ignored. Hey, Himself needn’t ever know about SNAP, m’kay?
I don’t do quilt labels ever, but I did put this on the back of hers and included her trademark expression.
Use it up until there’s nothing left, Merle. Enjoy!
