    I met this couple from Kansas at the laundry mat a couple of years ago when I was washing my quilts. She was a quilter and I new right away we were ment to have a friendship and invited them to my home. We talked and talked and went to quilts stores and became bestest buddies. They came to see us today and she brought me the most beautiful gift. Although not a quilt, I feel I had to share it with all of you. It is a crocheted doiley (sp) 36" round and looks beautiful on my kitchen table. I just love it. My mouth fell open when I saw it. Her quilt is the one on my avatar that I just quilted. Everything she does is fantastic and beautiful.

    Beautiful!!

    Stunning! Superb gift. I lived in KS for 5 1/2 years, the generosity doesn't surprise me.

    What a beautiful gift, makes me want to go do some crocheting. Started one like that years ago for a tablecloth, finally finished it for a doily.

    Sounds like a wonderful friendship got started at the laundromat. It's a beautiful tabletop she crocheted.

    That quilt looks like "Lucky Stars" by Atkinson Designs. Type in "Lucky Stars" in the "Search" feature at the top of this page and you will find pictures of this fabulous quilt. The stars "float" so that you do not have to match up the points, etc.

    Seeing that makes me regret more than ever that I can't crochet anymore due to arthritis. That is truly a work of art to be treasured. What a wonderful friend.

    it's beautiful. i believe it is called "peacock feathers". i once done one like that and someday i want to put it on a quilt. i've seen a quilt made of crocheted doilies and know it can be done, it's just beyond my level right now. but someday.
