Wow, is that title a mouth full or what? I guess I could just call it Friday Link Parties?
Bonus Bonus? Because I finished 2 items from my UFO list before their monthly numbers were called.
Anyhoo, if you thought last week’s Whoop Whoop was gorgeous, just wait until you see this week!!! To say I am in awe is such an understatement, but I am in AWE of the artistry of Sue Daurio!!! I sent two wallhangings off to her for quilting and she returned masterpieces! But first..
Back in my former quilting days I was a member of the guild in my city. For many years I really enjoyed the group. But then we had a period where some strong personalities took control and it became a less fun entity. During these years we had a quilt show I was in charge of, right in the middle of my 3rd pregnancy*. The s*itty behavior of quite a few of these “women” ended up souring me on this wonderful organization, so I left quilting and the group a few years later. Plus, I took up knitting, so that became my focus.
During that quilt show a member had a gorgeous blue and white quilt that was a feathered star. OMG! I fell hard for this pattern!! But not wanting to do a large piece, I reduced the size down so it would just be a wall hanging. For the life of my I can no longer remember what pattern I used. Planning to hand quilt it, it went into hibernation and once I left the craft in 2000, I never revisited it’s state or being half done.
Fast forward to 2017 and I get back into quilting. Through all the moves, 3 houses since 2000, I hauled a bit of the former stash with me, some kits, tops, and patterns. This one moved with me every time. But now, now it’s a true wallhanging and can take it’s place on the wall in the front hall where I will pass it every time I enter or leave my sewing room!!!
I am thinking it’s the perfect finish for Valentine’s Day decorating!
