Itching to get Quilting!

Now that I am feeling better, it is time to get quilting again. I was ill for three weeks, so I was getting itchy fingers! My husband made fun of me!! Can you imagine!
I finished a double wedding ring quilt for a customer. She wanted to use templates that her mother used. I thought they turned out really nice, and so did she! This quilt was for her bed and she was delighted!

It has certainly been an eventful month for me. I was pretty sick for about three weeks. Thank goodness that is over and I am feeling almost back to normal. I have finished a customer quilt. It was a double wedding ring quilt and she had me use the templates that her mother used to use on this type quilt. I thought it was pretty when it was all finished and my customer was pleased.

Amazing Experience

Wow! I can't believe how long it has been since I have posted anything. I spent almost all of February sick. I won't get into any of the details, but I was beginning to think that I was going to be an invalid forever!!!!! It is nice to fell better, and slowly, day by day, my strength is returning.

I have been feeling better just in time for an unusual experience. We had an 8 month old baby in our church die of SIDS last week and they asked my if I would be willing to do a burial quilt. All of the women who wished to contributed a square of white fabric and my daughter put is all together in a beautiful quilt top. I think it turned out lovely. It was a joy to be able to do something that expresses the love we all feel for this good family.
