    This is a CUSTOMER QUILT that I quilted. I can't put it on the blog since her niece, who will be receiving it for her birthday, checks it out once in a while. So, I'll post it here, and in September it'll be on my blog.

    She provided a flannel back. We used Quilter's Dream Puff batting (a high quality puffy polyester), So Fine thread on the top, Bottom Line on the bottom.

    I have, just in quilting, about 35 hours into this. As with just about anything we do, it does go faster once you do something a bazillion times! By the time I got the last row of feathers, I could do each one in about 10 minutes. The first ones took about 1/2 hour each.

    Thank you all for your nice comments! And, yes, there are some quilts that I get to work on that I'd really like to do for myself. I'm actually thinking of making one of these to donate to my kid's school's alumni association. Keep in mind that I've thought that on only about a dozen quilts this year! If I could just find time to piece!!

    I live in Washington State, on the far western side of the US. We're about 30 miles south of Grand Coulee Dam. If you find the Columbia River on a map, start at the Canadian border. The lake formed by Grand Coulee Dam goes almost to the border. Follow that lake south to the first dam on the Columbia, and we're just south of there.

    I would really like to see Jeanette's face when she gets this. She comes in for lunch on Wednesdays when the ladies, including her aunt, work on charity quilts. Nice, NICE person, and her aunt's instructions to me were "Make it special because she's a special niece." Mary will probably get the quilt this coming Wednesday, but I won't get to see her face when she sees it for the first time....I have to go to a funeral that day. RATS!!!!
