MORE PATRIOTIC, CQ VEST FRONTS HOME
I love patriotic quilts, and usually before Memorial Day I switch my quilts on the wall. I thought I had all my patriotic quilts out last week, but kept felt I was missing something. John built a long time ago a deacon's bench that sits in our entry way that has a lift up seat, and I have a lot of quilts in under the seat. Kristen brought a friend over the other day, and wanted to see some of my quilts. I took her in the bedroom, where I have Dear Jane on a quilt rack, and several others, and realized this was underneath the pile. It is called America, and it was designed by Teri Christopherson in a book called Mulberry Lane. This was quilted for me by Susan Nixon, when she formerly had a quilting machine in 2001.
This was a BOM that I hand appliqued, I actually made 2 of them, one for me, and one for the LQS. This was quilted for me in 2000 by Bonnie Hunter. I can't remember who the designer was of this one.
These two quilts look so nice on my blue walls!
Last week I got back my vest fronts that I sent along in our small RR group of friends: Susan, Gail, Moira, Candi . I have had these vests fronts made for quite a few years, and asked them to help me finish my UFO. They came home last week and I am thrilled with the embellishment these ladies did. There is still a bit to do, but it is very close to finished.
Gail helped embellish this bush that I had already stitched and added beads and flower buds.
Candi did this lovely heart with SRE flowers.
Not exactly sure about this one, Candi didn't write in my accompanying book.
Not sure about this either.
There are a lot more seams I didn't take a picture of, or acknowledge, but I love them all.
I see I have more transcription to do, better get back to work!
Next week I will be able to share my CQI purse entry, after the results are out. I love it, even though I am up again stiff competition in the contest. There were 13 of us, and the other entries are wonderful.
