Thanks for the amazing description. It sure looks nice on my bed. I started that quilt about seven years ago and got bored with sewing all of those little pieces together. At the time I didn't realize the hard part was yet to come.
And you are going to give this quilt away?
You sure must like those people! LOL
Thank you Jo. They will appreciate it. My brother built his own house a and the workmanship is perfection. He also does woodworking on the side. He is retired now and is a contractor supervising building Houses For Humanity. Lisa loves everything I make for her. She doesn't sew but has beautiful gardens and is active in garden clubs.
Mary, that is a simply superb quilt. Double Wedding Ring is a labor of love, especially the way you've done it with all the individual wedges for the arcs (instead of simply cutting an arc of fabric). Assembly is not for the faint of heart. The scalloped edges are just fantastic.
This quilt is a masterpiece and from how you have described your brother and his wife, they will cherish this gift.
Oh, Mary--that is one amazing quilt! So beautiful and so much work! How long did it take you to make it? I can send you my snail mail address if you would like to make another one.
Mary that is besutiful. I am sure they will treasure it.
Here's my clay workshop in the garage, now located in the area where DH used to have his Lionel train layout. I've spread out all of the leached clay I plan to use for the next few weeks, creating bugs, flowers and other ornamental whatevers to put on stakes. First flower looks suspiciously like a zinnia. (Couldn't help myself .. used two shades of red clay and two shades of yellow clay just because I had them available.) Other objects will probably look less like "real" things. Maybe I'll aim for an orange dragonfly-ish thing. And chartreuse/purple ladybugs.
I will mutter to myself "Go for weird, go for weird" as I select clays for the next object.
I really like your flower. From the mat it looks about five inches big? You have such a wonderful work space to enjoy this new spring gardening in.
