    Quilt for Hazel, on turning 100

    This is my first quilt finish of 2012 -- a group project by our women's bible study made for the oldest member of our church -- Hazel turning 100 this month. It's lap sized, and a nice lightweight texture.

    I did the fabric selection, drafted the pattern, and coordinated the group efforts in piecing. A friend did the lovely celtic knot applique work. I did the FMQ.

    That is beautiful. I'm sure she will be very touched and proud to own it. God bless her for a few more years. A woman in our church just turned 107.

    How BEAUTIFUL! I have that pattern, in the book Scrap Basket Sensations, but your original interpretation is wonderful. Love the Celtic knot and colors you used. My grandmother, Hazel, would be 100 this year if she were alive. She passed away 4 years ago, God have mercy on her. She taught me to sew, helped raise us, provided for our education. I hope your Hazel enjoys her birthday and this lovely quilt. May God bless you both!
