A quilt was finished in my studio this past week and it was NOT mine!!
Back in the summer, my friend Kaitlynn asked if I would teach her to make a quilt. We made a great start before classes started again for her and then things slowed down to a crawl.
On Monday she came over with the intent to FINISH the quilt in time to use as a Christmas gift for her Mom. She spent 4 hours bent over the machine, with the free-motion quilting FLOWING out.
The effort worked and before she left, we had a wonderful photo of her WITH her new, finished quilt…..
But the best photo arrived on Christmas Eve…..
….the smiles say it all!!

This is proof of your love for quilting and people. What a gift you gave Katilynn, the chance to learn from a master quilter and in turn the opportunity for her to give her mother a masterpiece. Thank you for your untiring willingness to minister to so many… That’s an idea for a new ministry “Quilting with the Master” because anyone who spends time with you in your studio is “standing on Holy ground” with one of the Master’s finest servants. Thank you for loving others so well
And didn’t it turn out gorgeous! I especially like the middle block in the third row.
I think that was her favorite one as well!!!
Thought I would reply to the last comment that tI received from you and see if that unblocks the dam!!!!!
That is a very special quilt. Lovely that she was able to finish it in time.
She was so excited and very motivated. The machine was flying!!!
