To brag on Kim

7’ long and 6’ wide - and lots of handsewing! But it's finished now.

I know most of us had already seen this but for posterity, I thought we should add it to the blog.

Kim said one of the highlights for the University Park celebration was the puppet show by Jim Henson's daughter. I'm glad the weather cooperated by being beautiful.

Hawaiian Sunset

This is Elaine's quilt that she made in Hawaii while on vacation. Did you ever notice that a lot of quilts have feet?

Chinese Coins

I started this quilt over 10 years ago when we still lived in Maryland. Now it is just waiting for Alyssa to put on the binding. Hurrah! Thank you to Jenny for helping me select the green fabric from the sashing and large floral for the border.

On the right is our Kim working on her University Park quilt. Doesn't she look like she's having fun. Of course a day quilting with friends is always a good day!

I have to brag a bit here. She's wearing a vest that I made for her over 10 years ago. Can you believe it!

Nine Patch and Hourglass blocks

I think the first Lintott book had this design, and both Jenny and I have made it at least once. I have a second one started (red/white/blue).

Here it is again, I found it by clicking on a web that came up on the right side of the blog! It is from a Kaffe Fassett book. Yuki -- do you get any .002 cents from that activity?
