One of my sisters is a member of the Quiltingboard. Her name is Joan and her board name is jabear617.
She is such a sweetheart and peace maker. She finds a way to make you talk about the things you like, what you did with your day, etc. She would call me.
Joan: Whatcha doin.
Dorothy: Readying the Quiltingboard.
Joan: What is the Quiltingboard.
Dorothy: A large group of quilters showing pictures of their quilts, talking about quilts and things they have made, teaching us stuff. I learn so much.
Joan: But sister, you already know how to sew.
Dorothy: No, I am learning now. I was just 'doing it' before and I didn't know what I was doing.
Dorothy: Want to see some of my post? This is the link.
Joan became a member in September! :thumbup:
She thought she did not know how to quilt. She knows more than she remembers that she knew.
I adopted her on the Quiltingboard. She has read posts, searched, watched videos and tutorials. She bought a sewing machine, got the suggested tools and look what she made me to show me how much she has learned in such a short time.
This lap quilt is so precious to me. I was emotional when it arrived. My grandson was on the phone with Joan as I opened it. He said "Aunt Joan, Grandma really likes her present. She is crying. She likes it very much".
Thank you sweet sister. I keep it by my machine so I can enjoy it while I sew. It is perfect to put my sewing odds and ends on. Keep up the good work and enjoy the moment.
I think the bird in an Oreole. Right?
Some of the fabric came from our Mother's stash. Some is Joan's new stuff!
Such pretty fabric on the back. Her binding is nice.
I put my brick a brack on it as I sew. I just love it. It makes me smile. It makes me feel good.
