Long Overdue Update

I should have posted pictures of Genes quilted top last week but ....  No excuses.  I loved playing with   Genes top and had the best time.

This quilt is going to quilty hugs.

This one will go on the stack for a baby quilt when needed.

Another quilty hug.

Now I need to fire up the embroidery machine and stitch out some labels and sew them on.

Getting to know you...

First I want to thank each one of you that left a comment on the last few posts.  I appreciate all the support you have given.  It has been a tough road the last 18 months.  I take it one day at a time.

Quilting has been my life saver.  I can truly turn grief into happiness for a needy person.  So I continue making quilty hugs for chemo patients.

I had ordered a Forte 24 from Handi Quilter and it sat in my garage a few weeks before I could arrange a day that the quilt shop and I could get it built and configured.  I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It has really nice features like a lit bobbin area, low bobbin alarm and tie offs.

Today I pulled out a top donated by Gene .  I found the perfect backing from my stash and spent the day playing.  I'm happy to say that I finished it and am pleased with the outcome.  I will post the finished quilt tomorrow.
