Sometimes the news you get from a friend (even a friend you have never met in person) just motivates you to do something for them. Our Blogging friend Kaaren (The Painted Quilt) was recently told by her doctor that she could no longer sit at her sewing machine for any length of time. Just before she got the news she was planning to make a copy of this lovely quilt (antique top, newly quilted).
So I decided the only way to cheer her up was to make a little quilt with a similar feel. Since she has already received it, I can now show it to you.
Although I am not much of a machine quilter, I cannot imagine what I would do if I was told I could no longer sit at my machine. Luckily Kaaren is a fantastic had stitcher and hopefully will never have to give that up!
And just to show you what a wonderful quilter she is, I just received my Winter 2016 issue of Primitive Patchwork and Projects and Kaaren has a wonderful little quilt in it. I highly recommend picking up a copy. You can also receive digital copies from their website (here).
Kaaren isn’t on the computer much these days, but for your own entertainment I encourage you to browse through her Blog (here) for some marvelous photos and stories.
And let's all be thankful for every stitch we take! Have a great day!
