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.
