I have just finished the block and will mail it tomorrow. In a week we will be driving to vancouver with a few stops along the way and I will not be back until the end of January. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Your Christmas wallhanging is very lovely. It reminds me when my mom was alive and in a retirement home and then a long term care facility, I had made her a nativity scene panel and I free motion quilted it. She loved it so much she kept it up all year round. And everyone who came in her room had to admire it and she told them what a good quilter I was! I have it now! Such a nice memory!
Thank you for asking me to be your friend. I agree with you that it is nice to do your own quilting. I can do a few more intricate no-mark overall free motion quilting motifs but I chose a large meandering motif for donation quilts. Most everything I make I give away.
Scrambledf Fat Quarters is a QOV pattern that I was given at the QOV quilt-in in the Spring to have finished by the Fall Quilt-in in November. I was also given a precut fabric baggie.
I love the pattern myself. I mixed up the placement when I was sewing the blocks together and it doesn't matter. I have the pattern right in front of me, but I don't know how to scan it. I know it wouldn't matter to the QOV people to share it. I can easily make you a copy and send it. My e-mail is email@example.com.
The picture I posted is of the very first quilt I made - a wedding gift for my neice. I bought way too much fabric and still have a bunch left for other projects. I had that quilt quilted by a lady with a long arm machine. Now I'm trying to invent a way to do my own quilting one block at a time. I have a really hard time following orders so I kind of figure out my own way to get the job done. Arthritis puts limits on working with large quilts all at once.
Phyllis, I finally finished my bag using the texture magic. I posted it on my photos. It is the red, black and white bag. What pattern are you using for your project? Mine is the Slouchy Bag from the Quilt Patch in Moose Jaw.
Have a great weekend.
Phyllis, if you will tag your picture of you all eating at the restaurant with the word hearts, I will pull it to the scan on Hearts and Faces. If you have any questions give me a yell back. Let me know when you get it tagged. Thanks, Linda Great pic by the way!!!!
It will be nice to see the both of you tomorrow. I hope you don't mind that I am bringing my 2 gds as wellsince we received free Wed. golf passes for the Women's Open @ St. Charles GC so we will go straight there afterwards.
