For the locals... Honey Run Quilter's Annual Holiday Craft Fair is this Friday and Saturday, the 15th and 16th, 9:30 to 4 pm both days. Located in the classroom at Cathy's/Honey Run 2418 Cohasset Road, Chico CA 95926. Teresa will have store samples for sale, some that I quilted plus more items made by other needle artists and quilters. More info and links on my blog Ramblin' Rows.
This beautiful quilt was made by volunteers and quilted by Gail Belmont.
This is Gail on the left. She is a longarm quilter that quilts many of the tops donated to the Quilts of Honor program. She came to our guild meeting in September and presented quilts (made by members of our guild) to local Veterans. More about that evening is posted here on my blog.
The Color Guard starting off the evening
Quilts of Honor is an amazing program that honors all Veterans that have served
**Thank you to all that have served and are serving today**
Over the weekend I got lost in Pinterest! Oh my, the amount of eye candy! I set up a Pinterest account for my longarm quilting business. In the process choose a logo for my board and decided to use the same image for my blog. My Tree of Life project 'in progress' (ignore the pins). Hmmmm, pins. I suppose that fits right in on Pinterest... it's early and another busy week :0)
for a special lady. Shirley H turned 92 years young last month. She also finished this quilt!
and asked me to quilt it for her. Here is her top first loaded on my longarm...
Old school layout with the pillow top and kick pleat corners!
She asked for an all over but I just could not do that with this quilt. Especially when she told me that this would be her last quilt made and for her room! I quilted a feather design in the stars and flowers on the sides and alternate blocks, which she did request. Sides are a Pansy design that will hang along the sides of her bed.
Meet Shirley in her room with her quilt.
Perfect colors that she put together to bring in her headboard, cupboard and she loves purple!
BTW, that cupboard is filled with quilts she and her mother-in-law made. Gorgeous quilts, many hand quilted. I saw them the first time I visited with Shirley when I picked up her quilt but did not have my camera. This day we were both too rushed for time. This lady has a busy schedule! Next visit :0)
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day, stitching away!
