Today one of my errands was to get two quilts shipped off for the victims a terrible tornado in Moore OK. The lady in front of me saw what I was doing and was so touched, she reached in her wallet and gave me $20.00 towards shipping. WOW!!!!
I was so surprised and grateful for the help. I love giving the gift of comfort.
I was asked by a good friend if I wanted to submit a entry for the Bloggers Quilt Festival? Sure! At fall retreat the teachers usually decorate their class room. The doorway had hanging beads (the kind we used in the 70s) and the sun light came streaming through. This created a "vision" of a quilt idea to Anita Bowen who was taking a class. It is a generous lap size, quilted with the pattern hanging beads. I was honored that she asked me to quilt it. I used a lime green thread. Here now is That 70's Thing.

I saw a picture of this top some where and had to make it. No pattern, no problem. I started with a 4.5 unfinished block. got about half way done and decided it was too big. I went to a 2.5 inch unfinished block size. I am happy with this scale. Loving the secondary curves. YUMMY!
