Today was the day that Jennifer and I went to visit Love at her home. We had such a wonderful time!! She showed us all the wonderful quilts that she has, some of which are antiques from family and some of which she made. Her patriotic quilts were awesome - in fact, all of the quilts she has made were. You wouldn't believe (or maybe you would) that we talked for hours about quilts, family, quilting, and more quilting with never a lull. Ideas and inspiration flowed back and forth between us!
Before I left home this morning, I was able to make the Civil War block of the week.
The free motion quilting challenge was my main goal for the week and I was able to get the border quilted on this half of my basket quilt. I layered the quilt in two pieces, so I have the other half left to quilt. I feel pretty comfortable with feathers, but still need a lot of practice. I have gotten so many ideas from other quilters doing the challenge and will be trying to put them into practice as I continue to quilt my own quilts.
