The Three Musketeer's Sew Day!!!
Last Saturday, I had 2 of my closest quilting friends over for a day of quilting fun. It's been AGES since we last got together and it ended up making for a WONDERFUL day.
Helena arrived first, as she had to leave before lunch. She got right to work on creating a back for THIS quilt:
Britt arrived about the normal time (for her.) She stayed until early afternoon and got a fair amount done on THIS quilt made from gobs of her scraps:
I managed to get a long-standing project done... labels for gift quilts. The fabrics were pulled from my stash and coordinate well with the quilts:
Today's "quilting uniform"???
Oh! About that UFO...
It's a project that I decided had been postponed long enough. This Old Orange Commission quilt has been waiting in the wings for a year now. The stars aligned and it was DONE on DS2's first day of his senior year of high school:
Delivery will be scheduled for later this week. I'm sure to have a delighted client! It's a beautifully "rustic" Churn Dash quilt that one of her ancestors pieced. I was commissioned to turn it into a usable quilt. This quilt is the 4th in a series of such quilts that she has asked me to complete for her. It's such an honor to be trusted with someone's inheritance. :o))
With my current schedule, I, in turn, trusted the commission to my friend Gayle. She shared the work with me and did a lovely job on the quilting. Thanks again, Gayle!! Don't we make a great team?!?! :o))
Until next time...
Shop your stash!!!
(There's no telling WHAT wonders await.)
