Show and Tell

My sister came from Missouri to go to the American Quilt Expo with me. There certainly wasn’t the crowd that AQS  (American Quilting Society) draws. It was nice not to bump into people every second.

Anyway, June also brought with her a quilt top that she finished. She’s been working on it since her kids were toddler age. She loves handwork so hand applique is right up her alley and it shows. She has way more patience and discipline than I do, but I want to work on that.

She wants me to quilt it, and then she will give it to a co-worker who will be retiring this year. I have until Thanksgiving.

The pattern is from Piece O’ Cake Designs called Thru Grandmother’s Window.

The applique should definitely be the focal point of the quilt and the quilting should just be there to support it.
