I am happy to report that the Pansy quilt is not only finished but given to the recepient! If you remember, one of the ladies in our quilt group had been diagnosed with cervical cancer. The course of treatment was a complete hysterectomy, which they did, and the pathology report came back with NO cancer in any part and none in her lymph nodes!! She is young and has a 10 year old son so this is great news for her and her family.
These are a few of the individual pansys that were on the quilt.
Here is the whole quilt. Isn't it spectacular??
You can see the recepient peeking over the quilt in the upper left corner.
These show Liz's mad skills with her LA machine!! She is a wonder!!
This last one is the label. I fused the pansy's and then sewed the label to the quilt (forgetting, of course to stitch down the fusing! So I had to do it after it was on the quilt)
I have been battling this awful cold all weekend, but I am finally beginning to feel better. I cleaned up the sewing/living room this weekend and I did manage to get 18 of my pumpkins blanket stitched around, and the embroidered animal quilt (you saw the squares in the last post) top finished. I brought the top and the rest of it today to work to give to the Amazing Liz to work her magic on = )
I found out last night that DD1 is planning on coming home and wants me to throw a Halloween Party for her and her friends (and my friends too). She is a little lonely in IN. I LOVE Halloween but really didn't want to have to put all the sewing away and decorate. I guess it just means I will have to work really hard over the next 2 weeks to finish a LOT of stuff so I can put it all away. Once it is all picked up and Halloween is over, it quickly rolls into Thanksgiving and Christmas and since we host both at our home, it may just stay packed up until after Christmas (which means all Christmas stuff needs to be done too). Maybe I can take it out for the first two weeks of November too, shhhh, don't tell.
