    Sandy's flag

    Sandy is certainly ready for the 4th of July with this bright flag quilt. She started piecing with a wonderful woven heart that is appliqued to the center block. Then the quilt was passed around as a Round Robbin with her friends adding "borders". Sandy then finished it up by adding the last four borders. The little gold stars are embellishments that were hand sewn with a small clear bead in the center of each star. Love the ribbon border! Great job by all!

    Susa's Spools

    When Susa brought me this Spool quilt - I knew I was going to have fun quilting it. Piano keyed the border, meandered the background, then settled down to quilting the spools to look as though they contained actual thread. I changed color quiet often to match the spools and stitched little trails of threads off onto the background. Hobbs 80/20 batting was used. Susa teaches clothing construction at a local university, knows a lot about fabrics and colors. I always look forward to what she brings me!

    The first tip would be to RELAX. The next is to HAVE FUN. Be patient with yourself, put some music on if you are so inclined and just start doodling. Practice, practice, practice.

    Both the quilts are lovely. I take my quilts to a LAQ and I love when she does custom quilting. I found a gal here on the board that does excellent work and I'm going to use her. You are excellent!! It's hard to find someone who can do a great custom job. It's a gift I say!! And you have it for sure!!!!

    I would call that one "Love of Country". So patriotic. Beautiful.
