Thea's quilting trials and tribulations.

Life teaches us many lessons! Some of the greatest lessons in my life have been taught to me by my quilts and the people that I have met through my quilting.

Tree quilt

when you make the donation quilt for the PC guild - they buy the material - pay for the long arm quilting... the scraps you have left over are to make something for the guild that will be done on a raffle basis... Last year the woman who made the quilt made bags from the left overs - I decided to design another quilt - I put a scrappy Christmas tree in the center and did the same squares that were in Rose - but then the next round I used my embroidery designs and did all the 5" snowflakes that I had - the ones in the corners are the same - I then put piano keys for the final border but only 4" instead of the 10" - I didn't have 10" pieces left...

So here it is... it is an inhouse raffle at the PC guild...

I don't have a picture of it after it was quilted but it is beautiful.. another member of our guild Jackie Wagner has a Statler quilting machine and she quilted it with Christmas designs - if I can get a picture of it quilted I will share it with you - it is spectacular the job she did...

Spud the next time they show it at guild I'll take a picture.  Jackie did a beautiful job - after the experience I had with the Rose quilt I was glad she was doing it as i trusted her to do it right and she did.

I especially like all the snowflakes.  Nice job, Althea.

Thank you - it was fun using embroidery designs on the quilt -  I have so many and they mostly just sit there - I loved using them in this quilt -

God bless,

Althea
