sisters & chains

Hi all,
Here is a beautiful red & white Irish Chain, this was pieced by my sister Patty.
Patty got carried away making blocks this quilt was huge 120 x 122.
I worked a lot of late nights and a couple of long weekend, but I got it done and Patty got it bound to be in our guild quilt show next weekend. I was literally chained to the machine to get this one done, gotta love your sisters and I do love mine.

Its been a while

I'ts been a while so I think it is time for a new post. Here is what is on the frame today, a little bit of Christmas in April.
First is a ,log cabin wreath this is my Mom's and has been hanging around way to long. It will be on the frame for a few more hours I need to re-time my machine.

Next is a snowman quilt, this came off the frame this morning, it's cute primitive looking, a simple snowflake edge to edge, and it's done.
The coal and carrot pieces were raw edge and zig zagged down not close enough to the edges, I had to glue stick them down to keep them from flipping over when quilting.
