    A gift for my aunt

    My Aunt Susie has been telling family members that she wants a "Debbie" quilt. I decided on the pattern Summer at Mom's. I had to use an off white for the backing as I didn't have enough white. I still need to bind it & will finish that in the next couple of days. It will be for her 75th birthday. I sure hope she likes it.

    Gorgeous, colorful quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    How sweet is that that she calls it a "Debbie quilt." Even sweeter that you made her such beautiful one.

    Lucky Aunt Susie! She will love it. That is a beautiful quilt. Simple is always so pretty and the addition of the applique in the border adds just enough to make it classy. Think quite a few of us would like a "Debbie Quilt".

    Thank you for the compliment. I quilt with a Juki TL 98 Q on a Little Gracie II frame. It's not a long arm and is an older set up, but it fits in my sewing room. Swirls are one of my favorite FMQ. With more practice I would love to learn feathers, but right now my feathers sort of look like the Loch Ness monster...lol. And I just noticed that my pictures are upside down. Don't know how that happened.
