    Here is a scrappy I quilted for a friend. This lady that did this is in her 80s and has lost her eyesight in one eye. She keeps right on as best she can. She is giving it to a young gal in her 20s who she has mentored for a few years.

    I had to stablize the sides with pellon as there was no border and the seams wanted to come out a little. She will take it out as it is basted or just leave it in the binding after she trims it. I would have trimmed it for her when I gave it to her but the gal she was giving it to was present.

    Give credit to where credit is due. This lady keeps right on although her sewing is not as perfect as it used to be.

    Yes it is free motion quilting. I have a Tin Lizzie and I just love working it.

    It is a lovely quilt. I hope I can still put quilts together at 80.

    Love the quilt and the quilting. You both did a great job and just think what it will mean to the young lady receiving such a wonderful gift.
    Does anyone know where to get the pattern? I could use it to take care of some on my stash.

    Love this lady's happy quilt, great that she is still creating at age 80! My Mum is almost this age and she has just had two cateract (SP) ops and can see a little better now, she has lost sight to Gloucoma (SP) and diabeties. She is managing to knit a little and make her lovely cards again though. Sewing is beyond her now but she still loves to create.
    Very nice quilting too!
    Thank you for sharing.

    What a wonderful quilt. My Aunt has macular degeneration and really misses her sewing. I don't know what I will do if I can't sew someday :(

    Both of you did a great job. Her piecing is much better than mine and I can still see pretty well. Nice job on the quilting.

    I am not sure what or where the pattern is. A lot of half-sq triangles. I will try to remember to ask the next time I see my friend (Monday).
