Judy, that pattern is wonderful. I will check out her Etsy page. Thank you again.
Enjoy our beautiful weather today.
We are having company for the holiday weekend, which means I won't be able to use my sewing room as it is also the guest room. The guests are family and she is a quilter too, so I can use it some. But it's not the same. So I'm getting hand work ready. I prepped the rest of my wall hanging, butterfly wings and Carolina Chickadee (for reference the bird is approx 2.5" tall). There are also a number of VERY small berries - I think I'm going to embroidery those. They are about the size of a pencil eraser, easier to embroider than try and turn under such small pieces and make them round. I know it can be done, but too fiddly. I'll also embroider the butterfly bodies on both and the beak/eyes/legs on the bird.
Your little applique project is really coming along, love the little bird.
And I was the very lucky recipient of that thoughtful gift!! You could have knocked me over with a feather when the mal lady showed up with this big tube. I am so honored to have a "Judy" quilt. And it is so much prettier in real life that the photo could ever be. "Angel Wings" joined a few other special wall hangings on the wall in my room and I smile each time I see it. Thanks just isn't enough.
Thank you for sharing Karen's Etsy page. There were lots of patterns I will save to Pintrest for "one of these days." I notice that if you make a boatload of squares, 4.5 maybe, with two snowballs on one side, you could make several of her patterns.
If you are working on smaller quilted things now, you could make placemats. One year I made many throughout the year t use up orphan block and get some instant gratification. I gave them to the meals on wheels folks to give their clients with their Thanksgiving dinner. They had only about 30 clients so it wasn't that bad. Just a thought.
Again, thank you so much! I am so honored to be your friend.
When you and I went to the quilt shop in CO.Was the shop call the Sister quilt shop?
I do a lot of charity work.
We went to the Lyons Quilt Shop. Thar was a fun day.
I do quilts for Lutheran World Relief and Project Linus. It is such a fulfilling way to volunteer.
Are there other places that you give your charity quilts?
I'm always on the look out for places with needs.

It just seemed to me that I have been reading on the forum for years that you've been running around Illinois dropping off your adorable quilts to various charities. Dozens and dozens (hundreds?) of lovingly made quilts have been taken to worthy causes for umpteen years. I think of you as an Illinois Angel of sorts and when I saw that pattern called "Cherub Wings" I said to myself "Lynne's a little bit old to be a cherub but that quilt is about my speed these days so I'll make it up for her."
Sneaky person that I am I didn't warn Lynne that it was coming. I like to flabbergast people. During the phone call she made after she got the quilt she told me I flabbergasted her DH when he saw that I attached her photo under one of the wings.
Can everyone tell that this was a fun project to make?
I just delivered yesterday a bunch of nap sized quilts to a cancer center in a nearby big city. The patients in the chemo center get so cold during treatment and they were asking for quilt donations. Maybe you could try something like that.
