My best friend of close to two decades (holy cow!), had shoulder surgery last week.
Jewells was working on gifts and other obligations (including working full time!) right up to the wire, including making a quilt top for her brand new great-nephew, baby Oliver. I wanted to do something for her as a get well gift and I wracked my brain trying to think of something helpful. It ended up being kismet that she needed a quilt top finished and I needed something special for a get well gift. Long story short, I offered to finish the quilt, and after swearing to her that it would not be a burden to me (it most emphatically was not!!), Jewells sent me all her stuff for the quilt, and I finished it up this weekend.
My free-motion quilting on anything bigger than a wall hanging tends to be a meander or waves (I’m still learning!). This time, I thought meandering was the way to go.
Basted and ready to go!
Quilting, in progress! Look at those happy little monkeys!
Quilting close up!
Fun fact…the border fabric on this quilt is the sashing/border fabric on my Project of Doom quilt!
And more quilting…
More quilting close-ups…’cause I can!
Quilting on the back.
The awesome label that Jewells made (fabric markers over printed text).
See you tomorrow for Talk To Me Tuesday!
