Happily Quilting

Quilting makes life fun

Sisters

I am so lucky that my four sisters are my best friends abd even more lucky that one of them quilts.  Sister Sue let me quilt a lot of her quilts on my longarm as praactice.  Now I do almost all of them for her.  I finally am feeling better this week and got two quilts on and off Jules (that the longarm) both of them for my sisters.  My siter Sue loves triangles and pinwheels are her Favorite.  This quilt center was make ut of leftover 1/2 square triangles from another quilt.  On one of our quilty days we designed this quilt.  I love how it turned out.

My sister Laura's mother-in-law died last year.  She and her hubby finally got around to going through her thing.  Laura did not know she was a quilter and boxed up all her stuff and sent it to me.  Within that was this pretty pieced top.  It looks like it was a BOM of class quilt.  I have finished it and will be giving it to Brian, my brother-in-law as a remembrence of his mom.  I used it to practice my feathers and other long arm techniques.

Spud, I DO know how lucky I am.  I am one of the few people I know who not only gets along with my siblings but ENJOYS spending time with them.  I credit my mom for this.

Yep, that is a blessing. My kids are that way they love being together, but my siblings and my husbands are a different story...Sad!
