As promised, I am including more close up photos of the quilts that I have completed. Due to the time crunch
in the past month, several other quilts were put on the back burner. I was commissioned in February to make a
Tie Quilt for Mary. Last week, it was finally completed and taken to Mary. She was estatic!
It was interesting to hear her story about the tie on the back of the quilt.
There were a total of 61 ties. I made 20 blocks, consisting of 3 ties each. There was 1 tie left over
so I decided to put it on the back of the quilt, just so all of them would be used up. The tie meant
nothing to me and Mary didn’t tell me which tie was which. Even if she had, I did not remember
throughout that whole 3 month period. When Mary saw the purple tie on the back of the quilt, she
was so excited. It was the tie that her late husband had worn to their daughter’s wedding. Wow!
What a God wink. I thought it was pretty cool.
Here are few close ups of the ties in the quilt. Mary’s husband had quilte a sense of humor.

AFter the tie quilt was completed, I moved onto Lynn’s applique quilt. I forget the name but
Lynn is becoming quite an accomplished appliquer. And her fabrics are so much fun too!
Isn’t this quilt amazing?
I did alot of pebbling in the block areas and double wainscotting lines in the outside border.
Aren’t the fabrics neat?
Of course, I had to put feathers in the corner areas. I think that it looks ok.
What do you think?
Besides all the quilting, our family discovered some baby birds nesting in the corner of our gazebo.
Aren’t they adorable? They can’t even see yet but boy can they sure make noise!
The mommy bird is quite busy feeding these hungry foursome.
Well, happy quilting and see you next week.
