Elizabeth sent me an email showing off some of the quilts she finished. She send the email way back in November and I am finally getting around to publishing this now. It got buried in my email along with a few other community quilt emails. I feel so bad for not getting to them sooner.
“Here are some quilts that I have worked on.
The first was quilted with wavy lines to suggest the seas and backed with blue flannel. It went to a local group, Interfaith, that provides household items to needy families.
The second also went to Interfaith… I decided to quilt it “organically,” a word I have seen in blogs that essentially means (I think) whatever you wish! I tried some curved lines, among other things. I wasn’t wowed with the result, but I hope someone will be happy with its warmth.
The last one also went to Interfaith. I quilted it with a meander and backed it with the brown you see in the photo. Animals meander when they aren’t charging so I thought the quilting was appropriate.
The Cresco Ladies are responsible for these. Thanks to them and to you for brightening someone’s day.
These all turned out so nice. Elizabeth did a great job finishing them. Sometimes I don’t think everyone realizes all the work that goes into finishing…prepping a back, loading the quilts, trimming the quilts, doing the actual machine quilting, and then, hopefully finding a binding that matches..then the actual binding, photographing, writing an email and delivering the finished quilts. I am always so impressed with all the work the finishers do. It is so appreciated. They are such a valuable link the community quilt chain. THANKS, Elizabeth, and thanks to the Cresco ladies for providing the tops.
