A Quilted Hug

Saturday was quilting day at The Strawberry Patch for Lady L. She arrived bright and early to try her hand at steering Sundance in loops over the surface of her beautiful chevron quilt made from her precious Grammy's fabrics.  Unlike the rest of us who would complete the quilting and then stand back to admire the finished product, Lady L. promptly wrapped herself up tightly in her first quilt! She did a phenomenal job start to finish, including her own awesome hand-dyed backing fabric!  This week she'll make her binding and get that attached, what a wonderful keepsake she'll have to take with her to college in August; a warm, quilted hug!


Well done, Lady L!
Life is Good!

How good of you to help Lady L create this quilted keepsake of her Grammy that will wrap her in warmth whenever she needs it. Looks like she did a great job (must have had a good teacher). Love the backing she made!

Woo hoo! A new quilter! What a great job she did -- but then, how could she not with such a great teacher guiding her along the way!
