When a notable birthday rocks around and you are asked to contribute to the making of a quilt for a friend it's nice to say 'yes I can help'. Several of Barbara's friends stitched and pieced blocks, my part was the quilting part. Here it is as it arrived in my studio pre quilting....................
Pretty darn amazing don't you think! Now for the quilting part, there are some close ups so you can see some of the blocks, rather than just a birds eye view.
Sometimes when I quilt these types of quilts I like to let a bit of my cheeky personality spring forth!
|I wonder what 'notable' year it was for Barbara?|
The following block came all the way from England!
So there you have it, each year another birthday comes around and you just never know what the 'fairies' might bring you! The finished quilt.
I just remembered I took a photo of Barbara receiving her beautiful quilt! Here she peeping out with several tears in her eyes.
To finish this post off here is the latest quilt on my machine, it's a big job, lots of quilting! Back to it. Thanks for stopping by.
