I am soooo proud of this wonderful lady. This is a case of a group at church (or work or any group of people) They need a gift for someone special. Somebody pipes up with... "I know someone that quilts!" "I bet she will make a quilt for us!" I think this has happened to lots of us. The problem is - #1 They have no idea how much time this will take. #2 how much it will cost. #3 They have definite ideas of what they want. But NO quilting experience.
Oh Boy! Sometimes this is VERY hard. I have seen a group of six or so ladies almost come to blows over picking a pattern and fabric. Too many ideas! This great lady took it all on herself. Now, she could have made a lap size quilt with an easy pattern. BUT NO! She does a queen size quilt with hand applique! What a lady!!!! I sure hope the recipient of this quilt loves this quilt to pieces. It's beautiful! And so is she!!!!
