Last week, my sister Gail joined us for a few days of quilting at the cabin. We both set up our machines on the dining room table and quilted until it was time to each and time to take Mazey for a walk.
Gail is diligently working on Winterset. She starts out with her pieces nicely placed on her block layout sheet.
She is VERY precise and organized. She inherited the "organizational" gene.......I did not.
All of her little parts and pieces turned into this gorgeous block. This block is spot on when it comes to being the correct size.
Gail is making her quilt larger without the appliqué in the center. Here are all of her finished blocks to date. In addition to these, she has all 72 of her pinwheels made.
Here's my original quilt with the center appliqué. So I guess you could say that I inherited the "appliqué" gene. Gail has an aversion to the "A" word. One of these days Gail, you are going to get an intensive lesson in appliqué. You can run but you can't hide. I know where to find you!
We had a wonderful week working on our projects together. Each of us were totally consumed in quilting for much of the day. Mazey loved having Auntie Gail come for a visit. She's just so much fun and we all love her.....both Gail and Mazey! Everyone should have such a great, supportive, kind and genuine sister!
