A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2019. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

"Frankenbatting"

"Frankenbatting" is a made-up quilting term for sewing together leftover pieces of batting into another big piece of batting (think: 75"x 90" give or take a few inches). Sometimes it takes a lot of weird pieces (but cut straight once again) to make an even bigger piece, but, this way, nothing is wasted. Quilters typically do not like to waste anything, and that includes bits and pieces of batting that we know can still be used.

Today, I worked on odd pieces of batting to make two large pieces I will eventually use for (2) larger size quilts coming up in my queue.

BSoleille! The bright side of "frankenbatting" at its finest hour!
