I’m happy to be back home, even though it means I’m not in Hawaii. Home is indeed where the heart is.
Two very fine quilters sent photos of their quilts for me to share with you. In both cases, the applique colors shine against the black backgrounds.
Joyce Lytle wrote this about the first quilt:
In the retirement village where I live (Savannah Lakes Village) in South Carolina, we have a group that meets every week. Every 2-3 years we make a quilt, then give it to a non-profit organization in our town of McCormick to raise funds for their group. That way we do not have to sell the raffle tickets, they do. Of course we all purchase tickets and hope we win the quilt! LOL.
The binding still needs to be stitched to the back and a sleeve attached. We haven’t decided which organization will get the quilt yet, but we are sure they will be thrilled.
I agree—the winner will be thrilled. You all did a wonderful job!
Roseanne Bullock, from Adelaide, Australia, sent the second photo. She wrote:
Have attached a photo of my version of your Stars In The Garden quilt, which I am happy to say came equal second in our exhibition jut last weekend. No prize, but considering we had 108 quilts, hangings, etc, I feel very happy with the result. Hope you are too!
Loved the pattern and only modified it slightly, as I was hand sewing, missed doing the hydrangea block… Did a mini stipple all around the flowers, took me two weeks!
This is a lovely quilt! I’m impressed that it only took 2 weeks for a mini-stipple :-).
I thank you both for sharing the photos of your lovely quilts. They are inspirational!
