Oh gosh! What a fabulous quilt! Your skills are well honed, and I admire your determation to not let anything get in your way of doing what you love.
I just felt it’s been too long and I needed to finish some things. I am trying to quilt Declan’s birthday quilt but our Nora has been here. She’s going back home tonight.
Hi Toogie, first of all it's gorgeous! I made a Lone Star quilt (my first ever Queen size quilt - what was I thinking!!!) about 35 years ago and unfortunately I used a polyester fabric in there (I didn't know at the time that it would stretch beyond what I wanted it to do!!!!!!!!!!!) and it never sat flat. I kept it for years and only got rid of it about 10 years ago.
I admire all the work you do for the Vets and this one is no exception. I watched the whole series of Longmire on Netflix and loved everything with the quilts. Love Chris
Several quilters have been interested in the show , for one reason because of the quilts they use. The Lonestar was in a hospital scene. I don’t know the characters but was a girl in hospital and the quilt was on her bed. Had an unusual border too.
Toogie, another great quilt, but as someone else asked, have you kept a quilt or two for yourself. Actually I think you need one for bed size and two lap quilts for the rocking chair when those days get here. WHAT? Are they here?
The way I keep falling and breaking body parts they probably are my Rockin’ Years😉
I have quilts from my Momo, momma and mother-in-law so I don’t need to keep any for ourselves except our 50th anniversary quilt.
Another beautiful quilt! So happy for you that you are able to get back doing them. One of my quilting friends says if you can't see what is wrong from 2 miles on a galloping horse it is OK!! We always see our little blips more quickly than anyone else. Someone is going to LOVE this quilt.
My grandmother from Canada would always say you won't see it on a trotting horse.
I’ve heard this saying online and could understand. Thanks you two.
It's beautiful, I can see no flaws. You are just amazing at what you can accomplish even when you're not well. So take care of yourself so you can totally heal and continue to knock the socks off of us.
Thank you for the pep talk! Lol
This is beautiful!! Is it for yourself? I hope the arm will continue to improve quickly, so you are able to do all the activities you love.
I just got out of the bathtub, by the hardest and told hubby well I won’t try that again anytime soon. I have been taking my showers in a shower chair but I have always been one that likes to be in the water for my bath. Hubby always took showers. I guess I’ll continue with showers for a while longer.
The quilt is not for me. It will be gifted sooner or later.
Toogie it is such a beautiful quilt. I am glad you were able to finish it. Hopefully it did not slow down the healing of your arm.
My arm is probably healed so must just be tight muscles that I need to work out. I’m glad this one is finished because my pins were in it and I couldn’t move on to something else. Thanks
Hurray on you being back quilting again. It is gorgeous! Take a rest and let your arm muscles gain back some strength.
And give yourself a break, you are too hard on yourself. It's beautiful.
Thank you both, my muscles have become tight as guitar strings and weak as noodles. I need a good workout.
I am glad you are back at it! It looks great to me. Wishing you continued good health. Suzanna
Thank you Suzanna, I appreciate your thoughts.
