Kate took us on her quilting journey through her family's many moves, health issues, and design decisions. (Remember quilters don't make mistakes, we make design decisions!)
Have you ever borrowed a gifted quilt back? Kate brought this quilt back from Arizona. It is her brother's quilt and will be shown in our show later this month. Love those rainbow colors.
Kate has a soft spot for African fabrics. She trades fabrics with her good friend, Patsy.
Kate taught a quilting class with the Girl Scouts and look at these funky houses. Kate put out a challenge to our group to make her house blocks to add to the finish of this quilt. She gave guild members a timeline of one and a half years to complete the challenge which is the length of her Co-President term. My brain is spinning with ideas!
Thank you, Kate, for sharing your quilting journey. I am happy to call you my friend and fellow quilter.
Here's a little show and tell. This quilt belongs to Sandy G. It was a round robin quilt with 7 participants. Sandy love oriental fabrics.
Above is Maribel's Patchwork of the Crosses new block. You can see more blocks HERE.
Here is my Friday Finish. This quilt is called Framed Ladies Wreath. It is only 18" x 24".
I am currently working on quilting Pink Patches Doll Quilt, pattern by Kathleen Tracy in her Sewing Circles book. I had a glitch in my longarm computer this week which delayed the finish of this quilt. I am thankful for help from Elaine Gilmore, Handi Quilter Educator, and I am back to quilting.
Have a wonderful weekend. I am looking forward to some warmer temperatures but not the mud in the backyard as the snow melts.
Today I am linking up with ..... Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Link a Finish Friday, Freedom Fridays, and Crazy Mom Quilts.
Yours in quilting,
