This is my first blog post. I'm just hoping somebody wants to read it!
I am happy to share with you my mom's quilt. She had quilted for many years, sewing tops with hand applique, cross stitch, and machine pieced. Then she would hand quilt them. This is a tradition that has been passed down in our family. Around 30 years ago she was diagnosed with an eye disease called Fuchs' dystrophy which is a deterioration of the cornea and has had a cornea transplant in each eye. She had given up quilting because her less than perfect vision made it difficult. BUT... Since she is retired and her eyes aren't straining to do her job each day, she has found that she is able to do some quilting! We are excited for her and happy to have her back to quilting.
She started with a pattern called 3, 6, 9 from The Quilt Company with some beautiful batik fabrics she selected.
I quilted it for her on the Innova using the Chevron Feather pantograph. She likes feather designs, and it turned out great. The back is a cream colored fabric, and she chose orange thread.
Help name the quilt! Bonnie's quilt cannot remain nameless. Some ideas have been suggested like "Second Chances", "Rebound", and actually I can't remember the others from the crazy brainstorming that has happened. Leave a suggestion in the comments. We would love to hear your feedback. Thanks for reading! Check back soon for more quilted eye candy!
This is me...
I LOVE to quilt, and every day I must sew for my sanity!
