|Rebecca is a new quilter, but she did great on this one for her sister I believe.|
|Quilted with the dragonflies panto to mimic the ones in the fabric. It's the bright yellow one on top of the next photo, but you still can't see it well.|
|Someday, I'll make a double wedding ring. I'm not ready to tackle that yet, but it's on the bucket list. Here's Susan's version, done all in batiks.|
Lisa's daughter was married and at some point Lisa asked guests to write messages of support to the bride and groom. Lisa then made the blocks into a lovely quilt top using the colors from the wedding and this is the result. How very special for everyone.
My friend Mariellen is very much involved in a charity fundraiser for the Humane Society and Dove Lewis animal hospital called "The Corgi Walk in the Pearl" It's going to be Aug. 18, 2018 and here's a link to their site. https://corgiwalk.com/
I saw this pattern for "Fox and Friends" baby quilt in a catalog, and decided that they were not foxes, but corgis. Showed it to Mariellen and she agreed, so here it is. I didn't purchase the pattern, just grabbed by 60 degree ruler and started cutting. Thankfully, it ended up larger than the baby quilt size it was designed as.
I believe that the plan is to raffle the quilt off to people who pre-register for the walk. Here's hoping they raise lots and lots of money for these 2 great programs.
If you are in Portland on the 18th, I encourage you to join the walk. It's free if you aren't bringing a dog, and there is nothing so adorable as 300+ corgis and their parents running around the park blocks. Many are dressed up, and there will be a "fashion show" as well.
Thank you officers for your service.
I guess I should learn to be more social, but it worked out this time. Usually, I don't answer the door unless I'm expecting someone. Because usually people ringing my bell unexpectedly are trying to sell me something I don't want. Thankfully, I answered this time! Gwen and her sister dropped by with a quilt that needed quilting, and here it is. Gwen designed it herself for her bed.
Start with a collection of blocks, increase the size from microscopic to 12" or so, add sashing and some applique, and now it's a bed sized quilt. Done in purples, one of my favorite colors.
