This is Lucy, who celebrated her 88th birthday on August 18 in my class at The Quilt Crossing in Boise. How cool is that!
The class worked on Pick-Up Sticks from The Quilter’s Practical Guide To Color, learning how to make this improv block the easy way. Everyone had a great time, especially Lucy!
Some of Lucy’s Piece O’ Cake applique quilts were hanging in the classroom and it was so much fun to have them there. This is her version of Spectacular Spring from Applique Delights (still available as a downloadable ebook).
And this is Lucy’s version of Thru Grandmother’s Window, our first block of the month. The patterns are available as downloadable ePatterns.
Lucy and I agreed that it’s good to have a goal and we both want to be quilting into our 100s. That’s an excellent goal, don’t you think?!
Lucy, I’m deeply impressed by your wonderful quilts. I admire your youth send you birthday greetings from Germany! And ….you are still beautiful! Heike
Beautiful quilts by a beautiful lady. Happy Birthday Lucy
you both have a great goal and I want to join you!! Really beautiful quilts, Lucy – HAPPY BIRTHDAY and I wish you many more years of happy quilting!!
Lucy is a treasure and you were very fortunate to have her in your class. Know her family will enjoy her quilting talents for many years. What a great way to spend a birthday!
