I can hear coffee mugs across the globe pounding on the table with quilters saying, "We want Gail, We want Gail!" Well folks you are stuck with me again. My sister Gail had to go home since her husband and kitties missed her. It was wonderful having Gail here with me, working on Emilie Elizabeth together, laughing, eating cookies, and going to (by) a tattoo parlor! It is an oddity that the word tattoo and parlor are used in the same sentence.
So back to quilting we don't go! I filled in at the shop yesterday and I'll be working at the shop today. Tomorrow I'm teaching, so my continued work on Emilie Elizabeth is on hold for a couple of days. But, I do have some beautiful pictures to show you that quilters sent to me.
Kathy sent me this picture of her finished Madrigal quilt! Kathy took my Madrigal class at Ladybugs Quilt shop a few short months ago and now she is finished! It is so beautiful Kathy. I loved your fabric choice for your flange......very striking. Your basket of flowers is just perfect also, as is the entire quilt. Thank you so much for taking my class, and making my pattern. I love it! I especially loved the fact that you sent me a picture. I teach so many classes and see the beginnings of wonderful quilts, but rarely get to see the finished product. Great job!
Last Spring I was contacted by Jane from Lady of the Lake quilt guild in Lakeport, California . Jane asked if their guild could make my Country Charmer pattern as their opportunity quilt for 2015! I immediately said yes and look at what the guild created! A giant Country Charmer beauty! Jane said they divided up the blocks between eight quilters. The girls used fabric from their stash and just look at what they made! I love it!
Tickets are going on sale to win this quilt. I'm going to try to clear my schedule and head up to Lakeport on October 4th for the Lady of the Lake quilt show. Click HERE for information about the show. Their Country Charmer will travel around to quilt shows for the next year, then it will be raffled off next fall in 2015.....which will be here before we know it! I've always thought about making a BIG Country Charmer......now I know why!
Now I've got to get ready for work. Don't worry, Gail will return as guest blogger the next time we get together.....which will be......
