Blessings everyone.  I have not closed my blog, but I have been posting pictures of quilts I've been quilting on my Facebook page.  Join me on Facebook under my name Marilyn Popplewell.  I do have my Facebook listed as private, but if  you would like to join me I'd love to have you.  I did quilt five quilts this week, three being custom using freehand quilting.  Whew, I am glad I can still freehand because one of the custom quilts was a beautiful appliqué quilt that is stunning.  There are two pictures on Facebook of this beauty.  Ada, who made this quilt, did a beautiful job on this beautiful quilt.

I had a fun day stopping to see some of the quilters that were attending quilt camp at Camp Tecumseh in Brookston, Indiana.  The ladies were having a great time and were very productive in using their time.  As always there were friendships (old and new) being cultivated, much laughter and gorgeous quilts in production.  I remember being told to "never say never", but I quilted a quilt this week that some of the pieces in the blocks were a quarter of an inch square in size.  This quilt was about 75 x 88 with about a five inch border and the body of the quilt was made up up of these tiny pieces.  The largest pieces of the block were about one inch square.  I had to tell Judy, the owner, that I had a great respect for her perseverance since she told me it took her two years to complete this quilt.  So if you want to see a job completed, I say give it to a quilter.

Blessings to all.
