Email your pictures and the story behind them to terrye@kayewood.com

I made this quilt as a gift for my husband's nephew's wedding in September 2011. I had seen the quilt made up in my LQS, and I fell in love with it at first sight. Fortunately, the fabrics were all on sale at the time! It came together quite quickly, and I had a local quilter do the quilting on her long-arm. It measures 50" square - just perfect for the newlyweds to snuggle under!

I've Learned....

Heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.
You shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret, it could change your life forever.
Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.
Sometimes you have to put the individual ahead of their actions.
Many things can be powered by the mind, the key is self-control

Reader's Hints, Tips and Techniques....

I am a beginner - The best thing I've learned is that pinning your pieces will help your quilt top to be neater than not pinning it. This may not be needed by experienced quilters though....Sarah

Alert - Lost Quilt....

"Wild Flowers! Second Season", went missing after the Houston Quilt Festival closed, most likely on Monday, Nov. 7. I'm sure we can only imagine Sharon's heartbreak over losing this amazing prize winning quilt. The quilt is 62" x 64.5".

Perhaps if the quilting community reaches out through their contacts, the quilt can be recovered. If you have any information that might help in finding Sharon's quilt, relay the information to Sharon at her email address: myfaithfirst@comcast.net
