Neck-Purse for Mary Cesar

mcsarpurse 004
Tomorrow evening the ALCQ is sponsoring a lecture by Hawaiian quilter & teacher Mary Cesar. I am the designated gift maker for the visiting teachers, whenever we have them come to teach. I made this one with a white on white snowflake fabric, & some Candlelight Thread in the bobbin for the quilting. So the outside was on the bottom when I quilted it.
I haven’t had time to do much work on my customer quilting this week. I have been working at the hospital, still doing some orientation to Pre-Admission Testing. Hopefully I will be able to fly on my own by tomorrow afternoon.
I hope to finish quilting on Wendy’s quilt this Saturday. All I have left is one side border & the bottom border. So close, & yet so far!

Lucky Mary!!! Your neck purse is lovely. I want one too. It is so adorable. I guess I better get off my butt and learn to quilt.
Thanks for sharing this treasure.

Your purse is absolutely delightful. Not sure what I could teach, but I'd love, love, love to come if you make me a neck-purse!

I'm sure your guild will enjoy Mary Cesar and she'll enjoy your beautiful neck purse. I know I'd enjoy both!
