    Jenni M has started a scholarship foundation in memory of her son. I think many of us love Jenni ...and in quilter's fashion we have rallied to help her cause. YA! I love quilters! Such generous people!

    Jenni found these three quilts on a great deal and I quilted them. I believe they are going into an auction to raise funds. You can contact Jenni M for more info on that.

    It is better to clean the quilts (sometimes) after they get quilted...I had to be careful when choosing a quilting design because these are fragile, hand pieced....and one of them is in kind of rough shape.
    I tried to do just enough to get by and make them stable. But the orange one with 4 patches..GREAT Shape! I love the colors....

    We used Muslin on the back of all of them to keep with that vintage feel. Hobbs polydown batting.

    I quilted everything freehand on my INNOVA. Thanks for looking.

    3 gold stars for quilting these Charismah. I can only imagine how interesting it must have been to load these on the rack.

    Hugs,

    Hmmmmm... first one is "interesting" ..... second one is "bright and fun" ..... and I'd class the third one as "country elegant"...

    Blessings on you, Charismah! .... You take such a deep interest in all of your projects; and you always seem to bring out the best in each .....

    You are a sweet treasure and a huge inspiration to this world of quilting .....

    Thanks for sharing your talents .....

    Looking at these made me see what I can do with one of my Granny's quilts that I have. It was going to be thrown out bec it was falling apart ... but I retrieved it. Falling apart or not, my Granny handmade it. Now I know what to do with it. Thank you. I LOVE the ones the two of you have done.
