Quilt # 104 - from the Archives
Glad Tidings - a quilt I made in 1999. It is my own design using angels from various sources. I was drawn to the folk art style after seeing some work by a friend, Judee L. from Richfield, NC. It is machine appliqued and hand quilted. It is 50 x 60". It was awarded a red ribbon at the NC State Fair in 1999 and earned a white ribbon at the Capitol Quilters Guild show in 2002. One of the comments on the judges sheet was that it could use more quilting in the borders.
I was surprised that no one commented at a family party today that I still had my "Christmas time" quilt up.
Tomorrow is a free day so I hope to get some sewing done.
I did sew a little on Saturday up at the lake. Mostly we fished, read and enjoyed the warm sunny days. John caught some nice crappie and bream. I read 2 books and caught 2 blue catfish. Life is good.
