Catching Up

One of the things I finished recently was the quilt for our past quilt guild president, Pam Harris. I didn't want to post about it until we gave her the quilt, as she reads my blog pretty regularly. The blocks were made by lots of the members of the Anchorage Log Cabin Quilters.(You should check out the quilt show pictures too). Jackie Carley put them together into a top. We gave Pam the top a year ago, & I promised her I would do the quilting for it. She added the small green & wider purple borders herself, & with the help of Sandy Winfree & some extra blocks, pieced the back.
I did all the quilting, & made the binding, put it on by machine, then Jetta Brewer- Huber, Donna Evans,
Marge Seidler & Barbara Clinton hand finished the binding.
I took one of my photos from the front of the quilt, & made a label for it using the Colorfast Printer fabric.
I cut it into a circle & hand appliqued it on at the meeting just prior to presenting it to Pam.

Today we had breakfast at the Meyn's house. Their youngest, Hope is going off to Southern Oregon U. in a few days.
Next to her is her BF Ethan.
Pete & Lily came too. (Pete is the Orho Doc that fixes our arthritic joints).
I made 2 pans of sticky, gooey, oh so yummy carmel buns. They were gone pretty fast.

They were indeed yummy and gone in a blink! Have never packed so many people around the table! But when Pete and Lily had to share one chair I knew it was time to spread into the living room...20 people is just too many for a table that seats 8! Thanks for coming! And the quilt pictures are gorgeous.

I really love that quilt! That lime green little border is perfect, as is your border quilting.
