Started summer 2011, finished summer 2012. My dear friend and neighbor Mary shares a new piecing method she calls 4-patch posie. Then, knowing I don't have a walking foot and don't even try to quilt - tells me about 'quilt as you go'! What a change in my sewing she shared that day. I love you Mary!
I really couldn't afford to buy fabric in the dimensions needed - but I threw caution to the wind, bought something just being put out in the fabric store I adored, came home and turned off the AC for three weeks to pay for my purchase. That's my mode of operation - I'm a lizard, have old fashioned high ceilings, huge windows and ceiling fans.
I'm so glad I showed this to my mom. I learned to sew from her mom, but she herself has never had the interest. She loves this quilt and wants it in her house!
