Yesterday, when I was working at the shop, Barbara called to make sure I was there, and said she had something to show me.
In she walks, with a big smile, a USA ballcap, and a quilt bag containing this, a finished Madrigal!
She worked outside her comfort level on this quilt during class. She began with the fabulous borders, and started pulling fabrics from her stash and from the shop's extensive fabric selection.
Beth Hummel from Livermore, added just the right amount of exquisite quilting to this beauty. Beth took a beautiful quilt and made it even more beautiful.
This is the back. Barbara had some leftover border print and created a larger version of the block on the front. She's just so darn clever!
This picture really shows off the wonderful quilting.
Barbara is a finisher. Here's a link to a post I wrote about becoming a finisher. With the new year approaching, we can add "become a finisher" to our list of New Year's resolutions.
I'm off to the shop again today for my Sew'n Wild Oaks class. This class is a group of finishers. We gather once a month to quilt, chat, eat and most importantly laugh. There's lots of energy in the room, so I have to go eat my bowl of Wheaties to keep up with the room full of champions!
