It's one of my most favorite parts of quilting......
My cousin Marcia and the "Blue Ridge Beauty" quilt I made her for the lovely gift of our grandmother's treadle sewing machine she gave me.
The design is by Bonnie Hunter.
My friend Dar quilted it, and I was able to give it to her during my time in Paducah.
I think she loved the back better than the front!
She is HUGE University of Kentucky fan!
I was also able to give "Apple Crisp" to my cousins Eugene and Paula.
Made and quilted by me!
Thanks Eugene for taking my mom flower shopping in Amish country!
And, thanks for letting me crash at your house during Paducah!
Remember in my last blog post where I talked about thanking my cousin Phyllis?
Well, here is "Second Hand Clothes" by Red Crinoline designs.
This is the quilt I gave my cousins Jerry and Phyllis.
Pieced by me and quilted by my friend Kim.
Thanks Phyllis for being my partner in crime in Paducah, and for taking such good care of my
mom and dad. And Thanks Jerry for babysitting my dad! If you all only knew how much my dad and Jerry are alike! I always say, Jerry is the son my dad always wanted! LOL JK
I LOVE GIVING QUILTS!
I love making quilts with good friends too!
Here is Bev with her version of "Second Hand Clothes" along with my version.
We HAD to have our photo made with our quilts!
Thanks Bev for sharing the pattern with me!
I will be on the road to Oswego, IL to give some Quilt of Valor presentations and share with the Wego Quiltn' Quilt Guild tomorrow. I also get to meet my blogging friend Cheryl of Cheryl's Teapots to Quilting. I can't wait for her to give me a master class in maintaining vintage sewing machines!
Hope you all have a great week!
Thanks for all of the encouragement!
