I used a Random Number Generator on the Internet, which picked the number 12. The lucky winner is Linda Creech! Here is Linda's comment about her quilting friendships.
I have been a member of the Capital Quilters Guild and the Undercover Bee for at least 15 years but until 2010 I was just a group member. In 2010 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and the ladies who were just part of the group became true friends. They created a beautiful inspirational wall hanging and the many cards and hugs that I have received for the past almost two years now has really uplifted me to show me how supportive we all are to each other.
How perfect is that! Congratulations, Linda, and thanks to everyone who shared the special relationships and friendships that quilting has brought to their lives.
While The Wedding Quilt is today's topic, I thought I would share the story of a wedding quilt that I made for my son Dave and daughter-in-law Emily. Emily asked for a quilt in all whites. Smart girl, because that is a quilt that could be used in any decor or style.
Only problem...I like to work with color, and get bored easily. It took me over a year to finish this quilt. I decided to make the quilt with squares of white, cream, ivory, and even beige in a variety of fabrics. Cotton, satin, Fairy Frost...I collected many beautiful fabrics and got them stitched together in a queen-size top.
Still, I was not very interested in this project.
Then, I put it on the longarm, started to quilt...and the magic began to happen. I used Nichole Webb's Floribunda Feathers, and by the time I was finished I could hardly stand to give this quilt away!
