WARNING!!! Annette & Katie, you may NOT look at this post!!! Do not go any further!!! :) Long time, no post on Mondays! This summer has been OVER THE TOP crazy busy! I am hoping to get my blogging life back in order here soon :) WIP's -in some form of progress... "Letters to my Daughter" block of the month(10 finished out of 25)

Anna & Mike's pillows 9 kits for 9 patch blocks have been delivered to the ladies ;) I have a few of them back, but not many :( ...so long as I get them back before Christmas :)
In 2009, my friend Chrisann's mother, Karen, passed away.
This quilt was made for Chrisann's brother Terry.
Terry's wife, Ruth chose the pattern from one of my first quilts.
I used some of Karen's clothes to make the quilt.
I made one for their father last Christmas. Blogged HERE.
For the back, I used a grey chevron minky.
The quilt is for Terry's birthday :)
Construction notes: I used Pellon featherweight fusible stabilizer on the back of the knits. I thought it was the same kind I had bought before , but it was not :/ This stabilizer was to thick. It made for very difficult and laborious quilting. I ended up breaking THREE needles while quilting it.
WARNING!!! Annette, you may NOT look at this post!!! Do not go any further!!! :)
My first border to add was to my dear friend Annette's medallion.
I added a template free, needle turned applique saw tooth border.
It's not perfect, but neither am I ;D
I got the idea from Megan Legas last year at the Peteetneet Quilt show. Megan was the featured artist last year, BRILLIANT QUILTER!!! I couldn't make the teeth look good using what I remembered of her technique, so I applied Patsy Wall's technique that she taught me at the quilt show this year and it worked REALLY well!!! :)
