|Lisa and Rachel are two amazing and lovely women who when I first met them, didn't even know how to sew. Know Lisa teaches classes in the French Braid quilt, and Rachel has recently finished law school. This quilt top was made by their friend who was taking Lisa's class. Sadly, she became ill and passed away before she could finish the quilt. While she was in the hospital, Lisa and Rachel took a piece of fabric and had their friend sign her name in pen on the fabric. Lisa then embroidered over her signature with thread, and now it's preserved with the quilt. Quilted with an edge to edge design of dragonflies and leaves. What a lovely memento of a dear friend.|
|Kitty has some swirls going through her body. All the animals also have embroidered eyes.|
|I did like the playing with my new rulers from Christmas though. The spines of the feathers are from the scallop edge, then filled with free hand feathers and piano keys on the outside edge. Could have been straighter.|
Poor quilt. I don't even remember the name of it! It's old, something I pieced when the Heart to Hand quilt shop was still open. This quilt has been stuffed into my quilt check in bag for literally years, and I finally decided that it wasn't doing me any good, so it needed to go and do some good. Off to the police with you!
I do like my playing around with the quilting designs though.
Anne has a lovely dog, Talon, who is represented by "Mr. Soft Ears." Talon has the softest ears I've ever felt! "Here Kitty Kitty is for the cats that live where the girls will live.A detail of Mr. Soft Ears. Can you see his whiskers?
This is such a great pattern! When you pull the quilt top out and have it loaded on the machine, you think "cool quilt." Then when you get it all finished, and hang it up, you realize that it's Really Cool! Love the fabrics and how they interact and the quilting design.
