    Flowers

    My friend Jim made this pretty quilt! He lost his leg due to surgery complications a year ago. He has been busy making quilts ever since! My hero!. I will be bringing it to him tomorrow.

    I love pansies in the spring. This quilt is finished just in time to celebrate the spring. You & Jim did a terrific job.

    I always appreciate seeing your glorious work, it inspires me but alas, our brains apparently work in different ways. I think my skill level is going up but my design sense for the quilting designs is lacking.

    Lovely job by both of you. You've combined to create a beautiful quilt. How wonderful that he has found a fulfilling outlet to take him out of himself and focus his energies on something positive. My best wishes to him.

    Your friend made such a beautiful spring looking quilt and the quilting is also beautiful.
    Create something beautiful from scraps.
