A QUILTING WE WILL GO!

  I WENT TO MY QUILTER THIS MORNING , MARY HAMMER , AND I BROUGHT TWO WALL HANGINGS WITH ME . THEY WERE ABOUT THE SIZE OF BABY QUILTS.  I TOOK MY HALLOWEEN  WALL HANGING, FROM THE LAST POST. AND MY BOW TIE WALL HANGING.



THIS WAS MY PIECED BACKING. THESE WERE THE LEFTOVERS FROM THE FRONT OF THE QUILT.   I KNEW NEXT YEAR I WOULD WANT TO BUY NEW HALLOWEEN FABRICS FOR MY PROJECTS ;  SO  I  DECIDED TO USE THEM UP.  I DO NOT BUY THAT MANY HALLOWEEN FABRICS.  ALSO MARY'S YOUNGEST DAUGHTER  HAD GIVEN ME SOME FABRIC SHE HAD SEWN TOGETHER LIKE A PATCH,  I TOLD HER WHEN SHE GAVE IT TO ME IT LOOKED LIKE PEOPLE WITH THIER HEADS CUT OFF.  I PUT THIS PATCH SHE HAD SEWN ON THE BACK OF MY QUILT.   PERFECT FOR MY HALLOWEEN QUILT.




MY BACKING FOR MY BOW TIE QUILT WAS AS YOU SEE BELOW.






MARY  IS SO NICE TO WORK WITH . SHE PICKS OUT THE THREAD FOR ME.  AND THEN SHE KNOWS IF SHE HAS A QUILTING PATTERN THAT WILL WORK OUT BETTER THAN SOMETHING I PICKED FROM A BOOK.  SHE HAS THOUSANDS OF PATTERNS TO CHOOSE FROM.  I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED EVERYTHING SHE DOES FOR ME. THANK YOU MARY!  ALL FOR NOW,  MARTHA.
