Mimi’s Quilt

My very best friend Mimi took a beginning quilt class last year and completed a wall hanging.  (She finally realized that I could not teach her all she needed to know!) She chose red hat colors (red and purple) and left the quilt for me to quilt and bind for her.  And now almost a year later it is completed and back in Virginia!


I did a stipple in the background and then added straight line quilting to the blocks and border.  I also sent Mimi some buttons if she wanted to add them to the flowers (She does)


Here is a close-up of the quilting.

I think she did a great job.  Enjoy your quilt Mimi!

Oh, I love my handsome boys!

Teaching Again

I will be teaching a class at Mission Rose this spring!

I have fallen in love with this book and I will be teaching the technique in May.


I have made these two samples and I want to make a third using the bigger sized block:


Above is a table runner and below is a wall hanging.


I have always enjoyed teaching and I am looking forward to the class!
