"...in a time lacking in truth and uncertainty and filled with anquish and despair, no woman should be shamefaced in attemping to give back to the world, through her work, a portion of its lost heart." Louise Bogan, American Poet 1897-1970

The Fun Has Begun

     Quick! Go here http://quiltinggallery.com/2011/09/13/quilt-along-block-1/?utm_source=feedblitz&utm_medium=FeedBlitzEmail&utm_campaign=0&utm_content=416375
to join the Christmas Quilt Along. (See button on the right side of my blog page.) Pat Sloan is the first designer with a Red & White block and you can download the instructions. Pat is a hoot! I just love her!

     I just got back yesterday from a fabulous weekend with two of my BFF that I have known for over 40 years. We laughed until our cheeks and stomachs hurt. Can't wait to do it again. I made them each a tablerunner and FMQ them myself. I can't believe I didn't get a picture of Arlene's before she left on Sunday, but here is Michelle's:

     Still need more practice, of course on my FMQ, but my friends loved their gifts. They said mistakes add character. So sweet.  You can get the tutorial to make this easy tablerunner here http://quiltinggallery.com/2011/08/16/two-hour-table-runner/. It is by Carli Heinrichs of Good Earth Quilting.

     Thanks for a great weekend ladies! You ROCK!!
     Blessings on your day, Deborah


  1. There's nothing like time spent with old friends.

    It waters our roots.

  2. Hi Deborah! I'm a friend of Em's and am blog hopping from over at that frilly undies place ;)I think you are one dear friend to share the giving of your quilted table runners with friends and they are so right. They are special just as you are and don't need beads to hide flaws of any kinds. I look forward to seeing more of your fun quilting as we all celebrate life and the love of creating and sharing!
