Barbara brought this quilt top that she had made for a new grandson. When she told me that the backing was "an old sheet", I tried to discourage her, but then learned that the sheet had belonged to the dad of the baby. Of course she had to use that! Then I pulled out all my "Surfer" music to listen to while quilting it.
I like modern quilts, but probably not something I'm going to piece. This way I get the best of everything. I get to enjoy the quilting, and seeing it, but someone else gets to piece it for me to enjoy quilting.
Joan brought me this quilt, and it's really lovely. The background is a linen feel fabric, so a great nubby texture. Very fun to work with.
Quilted with hearts across the main body of the quilt, and then a heart chain in the border.
Two quilts for Gerry's grand-daughter. I've seen the cat silhouette pattern before, but have never made one myself. Gonna have to research that I think.
Gerry chose the "Flat Cat" panto for quilting this one.
This is Ali's first quilt! Well done to her. She mentioned in her initial email that she needed "a win", so it made me that much happier to help her finish her quilt.
Quilted with the "Vanilla Cream" panto, something with lots of circular motion to interact with the squares in the piecing.
The following Saturday on my way home from an appt. I saw an officer pull into the parking lot of the church near our home. Followed him, and then waited outside his vehicle. "Well hello there." he says when saw me.
Nice officer, on his way to a meeting, but came over to pick up the quilt after his meeting. And to get a bit of the story behind why. It just warms my heart to "stalk a cop" and give them these.
