Back from the quilter!


Today two quilts came back from Patty Lennon, a local longarm quilter who is in my guild.

First is a quilt I am making for my sister.  I used Bonnie Hunter's Scrappy Trip Around the World pattern only I put it on point!

Changes it a bit.  I've made at least 4 of the regular so wanted to try something just a bit different!

Of course then I had a table-full of 2-1/2 inch strips from making my sister's quilt-top so I played with another Bonnie pattern...think this one is Carolina Chain?  (Can't get to my books right now...)

This is really a fun pattern and uses a lot of scraps!  Now I just need to make lots of binding!  Plus set up my old Bernina...that machine just powers through binding!

Which is helpful.  As I said I can't get to my books...mainly since the MS has crept up on me.  I went to the guild bee feeling a bit weak.  By the time I got home I could barely make it into the house.  Right now I am back to using a walker.  It happened that fast!  Hoping it turns around just as quickly!

Wow - your Scrappy Trip is STUNNING - what fun to make a stunning quilt out of scraps - I hope she loves it - I sure do!!!

Such a bummer having to deal with MS - I am sorry to hear of the sudden change - You are such a model for great attitude.

Stay creative and strong. Elaineadairpieces.blogspot.com

Do the fragrances in a large group like for your retreat affect your health? I have stopped attending meetings regularly because I need at least a couple of days to recuperate. I do not have MS just sensitivity to chemicals, especially those related to fragrances which are in everything from laundry products, cleaning, perfumes or body care - you know, everywhere in this day and age.

What a fun filled pair of quilts! They are so bright and refreshing after our long winter. hope you feel better soon!

It's so pretty! I'd want to keep it myself!

BTw, I'm hoping to see the border you've come up with on the Lozenge quilt - I am having trouble getting it out of my head, as I'm having similar issues on the border of a current quilt. I'm on "version 4" of one border and think it's working this time - hope to see yours back in design form - I'm loving it! Keep on coming up with border ideas - one will be perfectly "right".

Have a question but first--sure hope you're feeling at least some better!!! I'm wondering if you can tell me, whenever you get a chance, what the pattern was that you used on the raffle quilt some years ago where the backgrounds were scrappy grays and the appliques were beautiful bright colors. Thanks!!!
