I finished Joe’s patriotic quilt just in time for a surprise visit home over the Thanksgiving Holiday. Joe just completed basic training and will continue his service in VA.
This was amazing – 42 large blocks cross stitched by a Mom
gone but not forgotten. The daughter brought the quilt top to me and I was happy to help finish this fine tribute to Mom.
In September my (4) sisters and I found out we have another sister! I made this fall lap quilt and gave it to my new sister
at our first meeting. Life is truly full of wonderful surprises!
Actually, the quilt is a gift for my hubby, who has been so patient. I have been piecing/quilting for the last 15 years
and this is the first quilt actually for him! It’s a beauty too!
I just started a red/white/blue quilt for my son’s best friend who recently joined the Army Reserves – he’s in basic training now.
After many months of contemplation, I purchased a whole cloth pattern set. Here are pictures of it draped over my bed. It took me 13 hours and 17 M size bobbins to complete the queen size quilt. I love the look!!! Now I am ready to do it again!!
