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!
