Jackie Fisher sent pictures of her completed bullseye quilt, that she finished in September 2019. She took my Bullseye class last year at the Lighthouse Quilt Guild in Grand Haven, MI. 

Jackie says: “I love this quilt and the entire process! This morning I hung it in the window by my grand piano so everyone walking or riding by could enjoy it, too!  I too an amazing picture of it from the back side (facing the inside of my house) that looks like stained glass.

Isn’t that lovely!!!

Jackie is ready to quilt her SECOND 20” Bullseye that she is making for a Guild challenge that has been postponed “from May to, well, who really knows. I’ll send a pic of that when it’s finished.”

We can’t wait to see it! Thank you for sharing :-).

Amy Lumley sent me photos of her recently completed Searching for Beauty quilt. I love the fabric choices, especially the border fabric that goes so perfectly with her blocks. Here’s what Amy wrote:

Please look closely at the label on the back. I’m still working during the day but every night I looked forward to working on this wall hanging. You do beautiful work. Thank you for offering this to us. 

That’s George, Amy’s cat, on the quilt back. She says that “he is always in my photos as he thinks ever quilt I own (which is a lot) is his”. I have a cat like that too
