Lone Star finished

Chris has shared this picture of a quilt she started in a workshop I taught a few years ago.   It has been finished in time to be presented to a very special young lady on the occasion of her graduation from high school. 
Don’t the colours glow beautifully against the dark background?  And the Broken Star setting makes a lovely frame.
A gorgeous quilt.  I’m sure it will be treasured.

May’s UFO is done

It is wonderful to check another item off the list!

Cows baby quilt

This was made with blocks and fabric left over from a previous project.  Instead of a bag of odd blocks and bits to do something with someday, I have the top of a baby quilt ready to give whenever it is needed.  This is not quilted yet – I’ll wait to see if I want to play up the pink or emphasize the blue when I choose backing and binding.

Quilt in a week!

My sister arrived for a visit, bringing with her the extra large suitcase I'd told her would be needed to take back a quilt that was promised long ago. But.... the fabric still looked like this! Fabric for M's quilt


A week later, thanks to many helping hands, it looked like this: Miriam's quilt1

Actually, the quilt was designed and constructed the other way up, but I think it looks good from this angle, too. 

The quilt fit nicely inside the suitcase and the bag was JUST within the weight limits for the trip home.  The recipient has expressed her approval.  We are all proud of our “One Week, One Block Wonder.”
