Look what came to my house!
Merry from Washington State (she does not have a blog) made this delightful 4 patch with tomato red fabrics.
I love it, front and back--thanks Merry!

Sadly, Lisa died last week. Her husband sent me a picture of how they set up a remembrance area in front of the quilt.
Farewell, my dear friend.

I purchased a lavender grey dot to use between the panels and a darker lavender grey for the top and bottom borders and binding. It reminds me of the birch trees on our farm.
The back is made of pieces of black prints from my stash. Who knew Nancy Crow and Debbie Mumm and Hoffman Woodblocks would look so great together.
Quilted by Suzette Fisher.
AND I had it completed for her party! (Done 20 minutes before guests arrived...)

Janna celebrates her 60th birthday!
We are pictured coloring and playing with farm toys at Grandpa Scholten's feet, 1961.
Beth and I joined her this past weekend to help her celebrate. Note the quilt in the background, made from a delft tile theme block exchange I hosted many years ago.

And, checking out the care of quilts of mine living at their houses!
Here is my Aunt Betty (who sewed on a grasshopper green Elna) and my mom (who sewed on a Pfaff 330 that my dad bought for her when he was stationed in Germany).
