I put this quilt top together in early 2013 and finally was able to quilt it. I did it all on my regular machine. I think I am getting better at controlling where the stitches land.
Here are a couple of pictures
I am so excited about being able to go to the quilt show in Paducah this year. I have always wanted to go to this quilt show. I hope I can meet some of the wonderful people I have met here in blog land.
If you plan to go, let me know and we can plan to meet while there.
My DH and I joined the YMCA. It is only 3.4 miles from our new home. We have enjoyed swimming laps in the great heated pool there and I have been able to take the aquatic exercise class for arthritis. I feel it is helping with the pain in my knees and back.
I am working on a couple of memory quilts for a friend that lost her husband a little over a year ago. I think it is the most difficult quilt activity I have ever done. As I was cutting up the shirts I had tears just thinking of her dear DH and how wonderful he was. Such a great person! I will post photos of the quilts once I complete them.
Here is another group of dresses being sent to Haiti with our mission group.
This group of dresses brings me to a total of 55. I hope to make more throughout the year for future mission trips. My over all goal was to make 50 dresses and this group brought me to my goal and more!
