  1. I'm so glad that you're safe! I immediately thought of you when I heard Hattiesburg had gotten hit on the news.
  2. God is great, beer is good and people are crazy!
  3. I think you're right about the new quilters. It seems like everyone wants something finished NOW and the Modern Quilts do fit the bill. They don't require hours of piecing or applique to have a quilt and they fit with a lot of the fabrics being produced now. I do hope that there are still enough of us traditional quilters left and that this isn't the future.
  4. I'm sorry, I didn't know.......Happy Birthday!!! late.
  5. Just be sure to check for bleeding. The 88 year old that I just finished hadn't been pre-washed and any time I add any moisture it would bleed. I used puffy batting too and at times had to add even more. Like Vicki said, it will probably never lay flat. Good Luck and post pictures, please.
  6. I'm with Heidi, I needed a tissue warning. That's a beautiful story. Please post pictures when you're finished. I know the quilt will be beautiful, your work always is.
  7. I'm so glad to hear that all went well......Rest and take good care of yourself.
  8. When her daughter showed it to her, she did remember making it. There was so much extra fabric in the top that I had to use a high loft polyester batting. I would have liked to use cotton but there was just no way. It did end up with tucks even though I stuffed extra batting into some of the sections. It was hand pieced and some of the fabrics are starting to come apart. Her daughter machine sewed some of the sections to repair it. I don't know how long the quilt will hold up but it made her family happy and that's what it's all about. Thanks again for all the nice comments!
  9. Here's the close-ups that I promised..... Thanks for all of the nice comments. It really is special to have been a part of finishing this quilt so that the family will have something more to remember her by.
  10. Her daughter is really happy with it. I didn't get to meet the lady that pieced it. I'll post some close ups when I get home from work.
  11. I feel your pain. I just found a tuck in the back so I'm frogging too.
  12. The lady in the picture pieced this quilt when she was 15 yrs. old in 1924. Her daughter wanted it quilted and I was happy to be able to finish it while she's still alive. Thanks for looking.
  13. You have a very creative quilting style. I love the quilt and the quilting.
