I'm so glad you "powered through".  That quilt is beyond amazing!  I love that little squirrel!

Thanks Lynne! The squirrels were a real challenge but now that they are done I think they will make more appearances on future quilts. I am always drawn to pieced quilts with applique. In fact my forever quilt I finished last winter is also a log cabin with an applique border. It is not on my blog yet because I want a really nice photo shoot of that one. I did put it on the facebook challenge Ellen nominated me for.

As you may remember, each year I make a memory quilt for those who are retiring from the high school I worked at for so many years. I had three to make this year and it will probably be my last because I have been retired long enough that those left are all fairly new and unknown to me.  Sadly, thanks to the stupid virus we couldn't have a retirement party to deliver the quilts so they are still sitting here with me. Hopefully, we can get together this fall for a small get together.  I wish I would have gotten better photos so you could see how the signature blocks mixed with the novelty blocks that depicted that depicted their interests.

Sorry they turned sideways for some reason, and it would only let me post one at a time.  

I am sure the recipients will treasure those. Hopefully you will be able to present them soon. With the signature blocks I bet those are a ton of work.

Those quilts certainly take a lot of thinking, planning, organizing and possibly some nagging for you to get all of the parts and pieces together .... congratulations on jobs well done, Lynne.

It is a shame that you couldn't have a retirement party for the retiring teachers this year; I certainly hope something is organized so that everyone gets to enjoy seeing your friends receive their gifts.

Your talent and patience to create and power thru is outstanding, and it shows it's true colors in the tree of life quilt.

Thanks Jo. I still need to do a few tweaks. I noticed that one of the triangles in the tree block is turned wrong and there are two that have the same fabric next to each other so I will be fixing those and then this can wait its turn for quilting. My plan is to have this complete by years end.

Thanks, Judy.  The construction was really easy since they were all just 6 inch blocks, but you are right--it did take a lot of thinking and planning.  I wanted the novelty blocks  to fit each person, so that did take some hunting and thinking. At least these will be my last ones.
