First I need to give a little warning to my friend, Nancy, she might break out into hives when she sees the fabric in this first quilt.
Do you remember we the Kyle's Marketplace fabrics first came out? We all bought some. We all used some of it and then got kind of tired of it. I cut mine into a kit for a veteran's quilt. Nancy volunteered to piece it and still hasn't gotten over it. Mom decided it was time to get rid of hers and this is the first quilt she made with it.
That's bold! I love the border and I think this is destined to be a picnic quilt and it's perfect for that. She quilted this one in just a few hours and loaded up the next one.
This was her next quilt. Mom started this when we went to Lancaster in 2014. Her piecing on this is perfect. I hope she keeps this one for herself.
On this one I taught her to do leaves with her loops. The only way to learn to quilt is to load a quilt and go. Start at one edge and by the time you get to the other edge you will be better. Her start is on the left and her finish is on the right. She doesn't believe me but she did get a lot better by the time she got to the other end. In the turquoise border she did her first ever ruler work and quilted a piano key border!She's rockin' it. #4 is on the machine now.
