    I tried to upload pictures yesterday and it didn't go through. Am trying again. This is a comfort quilt made for my DSIL who is batteling breast cancer. This is my 3rd quilt quilted on my new longarm, all FMQ.
    (Maxine panel cut up and mofified and evolved as I went along.)
    Thanks for looking.

    That is so great. Your SIL should get a few chuckles from that. Something we all need in stressful times.

    I love Maxine!! ....and to think she is created by a man. LOL This quilt should bring some much needed comic relief as well as comfort to your SIL during her breast cancer battle. My prayers and hugs go out to her.

    Nice job. I like that you used something humorous. I'm sure that you SIL will really love the quilt and all of the time and love that you put into it.

    BTW, is the border fabric Roman Glass? I'm becoming obsessed with that print and the color orange lately.

    Wow! such a small world. I have that same fabric, I found at Hancock Fabric on the Northside of Chicago when I was visiting family for easter. I found three different bolts and got all of them. I have pieces cut out to make tote bags, wall hanging and bed quilts. It is so amazing, as to that's how my mother wants her quilt. Got it on sale for $3.98 per yard. My dad made the comment "Never seen that cartoon character."

    Not sure, I don't have a selvage age to check the name. Bought the last 2 yards at LQS.

    Sewfine, loved all your items. It is a fun fabric to work it. I did buy 1/2 yard of the blah blah fabric but opted not to use in this quilt.

    Thank you all for your kind comments and prayers for her :-)

    I brought the whole bolt of all three since my dad said get it all I will pay for them. My cost is just to make mother a lap quilt. Can't beat that price. Everybody at the hospital loves her. I have made and sold 10 tote bags, one small single wall hanging and two of the other one. Only made two "blah blah" tote bags. The salvage reads: " Maxine 2010 Hallmark Licensing, Inc for RobertKaufman, Screen Print D#10241 www.robertkaufman.com. I am saving my salvage to make mud rugs.
