A New American

This is my customer's quilt, Kathy Murray. I finished it this past week & delivered it to her yesterday.
She was thrilled with he quilting.
She was in a class at the Quilt Tree, at the time, & another quilter had a quilt ready to go, & gave it to me.

Anchorage is enjoying a prolonged autumn season this year. We've had a string of nice days strung together like pearls on a necklace. Mostly our color is gold of Aspens & birch, but yesterday I stood under this maple in our friend & surgeon, Pete Schaab's backyard.
He hosted a surprise party for his girl Lily, who became a US citizen this week. She was born in the UK, then moved to South Africa as a child. She has been living in the US, working as a Physical Therapist, & has spent 15 years on becoming a US citizen. She was very surprised at the party.
I made this little "Welcome" quilt for her. It's wool on top. The wooden hanger is a piece of driftwood, that I picked up off the beach in Homer.

We had bar-b-que ribs, & potluck. The food was great, & the day was perfect.
I've had so much going on lately, that I've had more to blog about than time to do it. If you'd like to see some of the quilt show from last week please go here. One of my customer quilts won a viewer's choice ribbon, for which I am very pleased.
