Quilt Facelift

I got a lot of quilting done today. I have all of the background done on Jan’s quilt, & have started working on the baskets of flowers. It’s looking beautiful , but I think I’ll wait until it’s done to show more.

This quilt was started by my friend Kathy Harte, then given to the the guild in it’s unfinished state, when Kathy was getting ready to move to Texas, & she was trying to lighten the load. Another member took it & added the blue-green border, & called it finished, giving it to the Small Quilt Auction committee to be auctioned off in our next quilt show.
I asked Irene if I might take it & finish the quilting on it, because it really needed it, & she was very glad I had volunteered. So today I removed the binding & finished the quilting, made a sleeve & rebound it, so now it’s really done!

My DH is home ill tonight. He has what sounds like a very stuffy head & sore throat. Poor baby.

You are one talented gal. You would laugh at the tied quilts. Hope hubby is feeling better. It must be in the air, my grandson has a sore throat and aches.

Thoses pictures really show how important the qulting is in the look of the finished quilt. From a sorry little top to a beautiful piece.

Fondly remembering round robin Project Linus from a forum long ago. It's fun to work on a group project and see what others do!

Wow, sure is a beauty in a little package! Hope your DH feels better soon; nothing so miserable as a summer cold!

Beautiful quilt work, Deb. Gosh, I haven't seen you in such a long time. Hard to believe we're all grandparents now and we're in Michigan and you're in Alaska! Howard says hello also!

The best part of this quilt is the quilting! Thanks Deb for picking up where Kathy left off - it's a stunning completion.
