    I agree, Teen... she was very courageous.

    Many of us have her address Reba, if you want to write and ask her husband Bill about donations. I can send you the address if you need it.

    Throughout the years I've seen posts again and again from jaba-- since the time when I first joined. She played a role in so many activities here on the Board. She was kindly and a good seamstress/quilter. I enjoyed the pictures she posted of her grandchildren. My condolences to her family (if they happen to visit here, as her son did earlier) and to her many friends that she made here.

    So sad to hear about Jaba. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

    Default Quilting the Giant Monster Quilt

    I've been tackling the quilting of my Round Robin quilt! This thing is a gigantic monster. It nearly is too big for my sit down machine.

    I love this quilt SO MUCH! The rounds just amaze me! The color amazes me... I will say thank you once again to all contributors. We made a gorgeous quilt!

    Sewbizgirl, your quilt is so colorful and fun. I have mine quilted and I am working on the binding. I chose a dark gray for the backing and a solid black for the binding. It is hard for me to work on at night so i spend afternoons hand stitching. We have a talented group of ladies in this round robin.

    I spoke with Bill - JABA's hubby yesterday. All the family came for funeral - all the children and grandchildren. He is surrounded by their love and knowledge that Jan is well in heaven. She had an enormous stash and many sewing machines including a long arm. Fortunately there are a few in the family who either quilt or sew - or want to. they will be given the great task of cleaning out her sewing area.
    Just keep the family in prayer - and send a note to him about how she played a part in your life. He knows all about us - but is not tech savvy to look us up!

    So sad. I remember being in swaps with her and corresponding with her. She will be greatly missed.

    I just added the sign up for the Jan-June Round Robin.
    If there is more than one group I would appreciate someone helping keep things organized.

    Default Jaba

    Hi,

    So sorry to hear that Jaba passed on! Prayers sent to her family at this time. I was in a number of swaps with her. She was an amazing seamstress & I loved and will treasure the blocks she made.
