Yeah! I had another quilt to do this week. I love it when you talk with someone on the phone and you feel like you could be friends. Charlotte was referred to me from the Dragonfly quilt shop.They have a regular Longarm person but as she lives away , there is a month turn around time. Maybe I can get the work that comes in in between. And just so you know blogger flipped this photo on its side and I can't seem to change it.

This quilt is Charlotte's first quilt and it is 87 inches square. I told her how impressed I was. She is coming out here to get the quilt Sat and I am going to help her with the binding. When I asked her if she knew how to put on the binding , she said she had the book quilting for dummies. Ya gotta love that answer! The quilt is for her granddaughter's wedding at the end of April.

So this is yet another Disappearing 9 Patch. I used 9 colors of my hand dyes and then played with what I got until I liked it. My plan is to quilt the daylights out of it and send it to my high school alumni weekend auction. I also have several panto's I found on a quilting program , they are different from all the run of the mill ones out there. I need to stitch them out.

Sew have a great day.

Count down to calving season.... I will start looking in earnest in April. The bull came to call in June but I recall that no cows greeted him very enthusiastically for a week or so...

Sew well.
