Christmas Wishes Christmas Wishes

This was Gail Pan’s 2009 BOM. I love the selection of words to express the faith and gratitude for the season – for all time. I chose subtle seasonal fabrics so this could hang from Oct – Jan. It was donated for a charity fund raiser.

Harmony Hopes Harmony Hopes

Although these playful angels are finished they are not finished. I continue to add more bling as I come across “stuff”. I hope this never sells in our next exhibition as the big child in me is very attached to it.

This quilt was made in memory of my best girlfriend Lynn who passed away in Aug 2009. Lynn and I were not only best friends, we were quilting friends and I miss her dearly. I do feel her presence in my studio and am greatful for the time we had together. I hope to raffle this quilt off for cancer
