Recently, I shared pictures of the small quilts that grace my quilting daughter's sewing room. While looking at those pictures, Joyce noticed Erin's old scissor collection...all two of them... and decided that she would like to add on to them! Would you believe that Joyce has mailed Erin her old scissors! Erin is thrilled and can't believe the kindness of strangers! I'll be sending pictures of Erin's growing scissor collection after she receives them! Thank you, Joyce!
Joyce just finished stitching two quilts and wanted to show them to me...but you know me! I can't keep anything to myself! I have to share them with YOU!! YES! BLOG FODDER!
The first quilt is hot off the press and it is gorgeous!! It's a Fig n' Berry Creations...a quilt designer from Australia! I hadn't heard of Fig n' Berry Designs so off I went to check out their website...OMGosh...gorgeous stitchery patterns!! You can check them out HERE...nice, eh?!
This is the masterpiece that is on Joyce's bed...and it is DDG!! (Drop Dead Gorgeous!!) Just beautiful! Joyce had a quilting friend in Seattle quilt it and man, is she a master at her craft!!!
Make sure that you click on the pictures to enlarge them as the details are wonderful! Thanks SEW MUCH, Joyce...not just for sharing your quilts (and scissors) but for your friendship! I really appreciate it!
Hey..FYI... starting THIS FRIDAY, (that's tomorrow!!) the Victoria Quilter's Guild Quilt Show begins!! If you live on Vancouver Island (or on the Mainland) you should grab your quilting friends and plan on attending! The more the merrier! It's always great fun... and even MORE FUN with a car, bus or boat full of quilters! Ahh yes, the high jinx of a car full of quilters...:o))
Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Stitching!!~P
