Yep there is one... sometimes you have to work on an Auburn Quilt!
This quilt was made by his mom years ago but she passed away before she was able to finish it.
A lady, Loretta, that goes to church with him found out about it and she finished the top. Now I have the honors of quilting it for him.
Auburn and all, I love it.

My favorite quilts, as I have said many times, are memory quilts. So many memories, tears and love go into these.
These two quilts belong to a sweet customer. She recently lost her husband and wanted to give her boys something to treasure from their father.
Because she chose different patterns I felt they deserved different quilting designs.
I am sure both the boys will realize how special these are and will treasure them for years to come.
As these were being quilted, I also worked on getting some Tshirts ready for quilting. Nothing like a good process and assembly line.
hese are in the process of being cut.
Let's GO! quilting!

So this isn't something I get to do often but I try when I can. Two quilts loaded at the same time with two different designs.

I say all the time that quilting to me is about memories. It is such a blessing to be a part of preserving someone else's memories.
This little beauty is started using a child's sheet with coordinating borders framing it out. I can only imagine a sweet little girl so excited that she got new little mermaid sheets for her bed. Now she will have that memory as well as the love put into this quilt forever. ;)

There is just something about a baby quilt that I love. This customer quilt is adorable.

Oh I'm back in my happy place. The holidays were wonderful but got me a little behind, then work for me further behind. Now here I am, in my quilt room and working on this beautiful customer quilt.
So I think "Thelma" was upset that I took time off for the holidays and allowed me to complete one row on a quilt before she broke. Thankful we completed the row and it didn't break in the middle.
So after a week more of downtime, Thelma and I are both happy quilters.
