First off, I just HAVE to show you Vandy’s quilt!! Oh man…I wish you could REALLY see it…sew much better in person! These pictures DO NOT DO IT JUSTICE!!
The logs are 1 1/2” small and spectacular!
Vandy said she got together with a bunch of friends and they did a ‘strip’ exchange…the strips had to be Christmas prints in red, green and beige…
…then they traded…Just LOOK at the variety!! Amazing!
It was hard to find the same print twice in this quilt!
Vandy quilted this quilt and did an awesome job…swirls and feathers! This is an heirloom quilt for sure…I just love it!! Christmas Candy at it’s best!
Anyone ‘out there’ interested in doing a strip swap??
When I got home from Heritage there was a package waiting for me!! It was a gift from Val…she is the quilter who won my GIVE AWAY a few years back…and then went all the way to Palm Springs to collect it!! You can read about my meeting with VAL HERE! The title of that post was YOU MEET THE NICEST PEOPLE…truer words were never spoken!! Val is STILL nice!!
I guess when Val was down south she bought some wool…(you know how it goes… ‘someday I am going to make something’)…well Val decided that day was never going to come…so let’s give it to Paulette!! Yippeee!!
Just LOOK at that hand dyed wool in three shades of gold…yummy pumpkin colours!! I know JUST the project!!
THANK YOU SEW MUCH, VAL!! It’s true…you DO meet the nicest people while blogging!! :o))))
Thanks SEW much for stopping by my little corner of the world…where the quilts are sweet as candy and you meet the nicest people!! Have a terrific Tuesday!!~P
