I love, love, LOVE to see variations of my quilt designs. This is my Heritage pattern made by my friend Kate. Her color combination of red, white and blue is spectacular. The machine quilting just puts this one over the top on the gorgeous scale.
The quilt started like this at a class I taught at Friends Around the Block in Colusa, CA. Every quilt has a beginning and a beautiful ending. Kate created an heirloom to enjoy for years and years to come. Well done YOU!
Then I received this image of my Country Charmer design made by Patricia. This is a fabulous finish too! This is what Patricia said about it.
I want to thank you for the Country Charmer pattern. I found a Christmas quilt made with this pattern on Pinterest and fell in love. The pattern was easy to follow, and I am thrilled with the results.
I am thrilled with your result too! Please send me a picture after it's quilted so I can enjoy looking at it all over again.
Fran, from Village Dry Goods in Brigham City, UT sent me a picture of my A Ribbon Runs Through It on display behind their counter in the shop. This actually is the quilt I made, and I haven't seen it in months since it's been traveling the country to different shops. To my understanding, the quilt is back in California and should now be at Cloth and Quilts in Hilmar, CA. I should take the 2-hour drive down and visit her.
On a personal note, I have now completed my jury duty for the rest of my life! I was officially excused yesterday from the pool of jurors as the final jury and alternates were selected. I swear some of the jurors in the "pool" where swimming at the shallow end of the gene pool. If I hadn't been on camera the entire time, I would have been banging my head on the nearest piece of wood. I spent four days, 6 hours each day, wading through jury selection, and listened to every personal problem and issue known to man. I'm done! I'm so done DONE! Can you feel my frustration?
Today I get to return to my normal life and schedule. Oh, it feels so good! You have no idea how good it feels to tackle my to-do list that grew while I was doing my civic duty.
