Winging its Way to Germany

I finally finished the thank-you gifts I’ve been making for the families who hosted our Eurythmy group last summer during our Germany tour. This morning I took my pile of packages down to the post office. This rag quilt is going to Gr√∂benzell, near Munich, where we stayed for several days. The instructions for filling out the customs forms were not helpful, to say the least, so I hope I got everything right and my packages go to the right place.¬† If not, I hope some customs inspector will use the quilts in good health.

I’m much happier making a rag quilt with half-square triangles than I was with simple square blocks. The diagonal lines in the triangles give the quilt a sense of movement and make it seem as if I put in a lot more work than I actually did (always a key goal of mine when quilting.)
