The customers at Heart to Hand did it again! These are bow tie blocks from the Lottery Block of the Month that I won in January, 2009. Each "tie" is quilted with a different design, but a consistent background design. This quilt will go to the Portland Police Sunshine Division. Thanks to everyone who made blocks!
I love what Jane has done with this panel from Heart to Hand. I never know what to do with panels, so I never buy them. I might have to make an exception to that rule in this situation. She chose the King Tut Nefertiri thread (another favorite), and I quilted it with leaves and flowers.
Laverna is one of the most prolific piecers that I know. She made this one for the leader of her Bible study group who is leaving the group. Lucky leader to get such a pretty quilt. We quilted it with leaves and vines to match the design in the quilt fabrics.
I met Jane when she came into Heart to Hand with a friend. Next thing I knew, she was calling and asking me to quilt these for her. I love the curved piecing, and the spiral piecing. I'm not a fan of paper piecing for myself, but I love the look of it. We did a pond water meander on the crane quilt, and a paisley meander on the purple quilt. So pretty!
