A First!

Here's my friend's FIRST quilt!
Isn't it a BEAUTY??

She came over to sew today and
FINISHED this top!

She began by making lots of 16 patches
using this method.

Then...
She found this BEAUTIFUL vintage fabric
to alternate with her pieced blocks.
The vintage fabric was found at a rummage sale
and in it's former life had been CURTAINS!!!

I love that buttery yellow!!!

While she pieced this lovely quilt today.....

I worked on my botched banner..
and FINISHED!!
Woo Hoo!!!

Quilting with friends ALWAYS
makes the sewing SWEETER!!!
