    A quilt I just finished today

    Here is a quilt, I finished today. I had a lady friend ask me in late Sept-early Oct, to make a quilt for daughter/son-law. For Christmas. She called me and told me to cancel her order. She tells me there getting divorced after 4 yrs marriage. I said that will be ok. I'll give the quilt, to my grdaughter for her 2018 graduation. Was planning on making my grdaughter a quilt anyhow.Name:  IMG_0536.JPG

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Hello, it is a really pretty quilt. Granddaughter will love to get it. You always have the right colors in a quilt. Little reds, blues, greens that go with the rest of it. You have really good arty eyes. Barny

    Sorry for their marriage woes, but I never would have canceled after I had a chance to own a quilt made by such a famous quilter as you. Her loss. Your granddaughters gain. Congrats on her schooling progress. And your quilt is just another beauty. I never tire of admiring your work.....Jane Quilter

    beautiful work!!! love your colors.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Another beautiful quilt completed! The colors and fabric choices are perfect for this pattern. The story is sad but the outcome is good.
