If Ever Oh Ever A Whiz There Was...

The Liz of Ann Arbor is one because...

Because, because because....because of the wonderful things she does...

Just look at this gorgeous quilting!!  One of the CL's (DIAN) pieced this top and it just screamed for custom block work and Liz did not disappoint!  Pay particular attention to the top where you can see the pieced outer border.
Just look at the center square.  It has rosebuds in a swirl.
This is the quilting in the pieced part of the top (and bottom) border. (from the back)
This is the center and around the center from the back.  Check out those free hand feathers.
Another close up of the center, from the back.
This shows the quilting of the cornerstone area, obviously from the back too.

I am continually amazed by her talent!  She marked some and drew it all in freehand.  Her skill is growing in leaps and bounds!  Speaking of Liz, she gave me some blocks that her mother hand embroidered/cross-stitched to design a quilt for her.  I have been giving it a lot of thought and have a few ideas.  I will take some pictures of the blocks and see what you all suggest  too.  i may just have to learn how to use my EQ program so I can show them here.  Maybe I can still use the old graph paper.  I really *need* to learn the EQ software though.  

Just a quick thank you to everyone that volunteered to send me some greens and blues for my "S" quilt.  I am overwhelmingly appreciative!  If you guys ever need something I might have all you have to do is ask.  I sent the little blue orphan in the mail and it said 2-3 day delivery but we will see if my friend gets it in that short amount of time!  I am so excited!  I have quilting with the CL's tonight so will be bringing this to Dian to see how she likes it.  I will try to get a picture of the heart string quilt the CL's did as it is beautiful.  Maybe I will take some pictures of the green string blocks we have done too although none of them are trimmed yet.  Lost of snow here in the last 2 days so I am just trying to stay warm.

Oh dear. I see you are moving fast, and I am not. Will you still need green two weeks from now, or am I too late?
