Wonderful Quilty People

Here is a wonderful quilty person with a very young quilter.


On the left is Janet.  One of Janet's many, many quilty talents is working with young quilters to make quilty items and some pretty fantastic quilts.  On the right, meet Muriel.  Isn't she lovely?  I had the pleasure of quilting Muriels very special quilt.  Here's a few photos:




I have got to say hands down, this is one of the most beautiful quilts I've had the pleasure to work with.  Muriel did an excellent job and I hope she continues with the quilting.  What a pretty young lady, and a FABULOUS quilt.



But wait!!
Janet works with other young ladies too!

Here's Klarey's quilt.  I believe Klarey made this quilt for someone very special in her life.  She and Janet came to visit me and Klarey selected the fantastic quilting design that I stitched out.  Another wonderful quilt...




 Keeping busy around here, hope all is well for you my friends.

Just a few for today..who doesn't like to see quilts?

I've got so many quilts that I'm just going to get right to it!

First couple of quilts come from Bev, and they are a couple of pretty cool, dark red and whites.  From what I got while talking with Bev these were a couple of long time UFO's, and now they are done!  Boy, oh, boy are they great!


The next cute quilt comes from my friend Sonja.  It's an adorable little quilt that she decided bats would be a great theme for the quilting. And there's a story to go with that choice.  Sonja leads a pretty amazing life, check out her blog Sonja Hakala, for the story behind this cute little quilt.  You will find  other very well written posts and some breathtaking photos!!  Stop by and tell Sonja "Hello!".



Another quilt, another story... I love stories!!  My next quilt comes from Stancy in NY.  Stancy had only made a few smaller quilts and after seeing the results her son bought her a "Christmas present".  That present was fabric!!  Now the kicker of the story is that he wanted her to make a quilt for him!!
Right, let me buy you the fabric so you can make a quilt for me.
Sounds like a couple of kids a my house!  Boys!
Stancy set out and made the greatest quilt for her son, she did a 
FABULOUS job!!   I've posted her note to me on the other blog, hope you
take a moment to read it.  Here's the quilt, and the reason I love what I do...



Here's a beautiful, beautiful quilt from Lourie.  I was so happy to help with this one.  Lourie made this quilt for a Brest Cancer Awareness raffle.  Thanks Lourie for allowing me to be a contributor on this project.




 Honestly I don't think Deb sleeps!!  This gal is on the go!! I am continually amazed at everything she can fit into a day.  Here's some of the quilts that I have had the pleasure of working with for Deb.  












Well, that's it for now, I've got plenty more that I need to get from one file to the other before I can share them with  you!
I am keeping just as busy as ever, hope life is treating you well.
