The Anniversary Quilt

Earlier this year, a wonderful old family friend commissioned me to make a quilt for his wife that would commemorate their 50th wedding anniversary in June. I told him I couldn’t do it by June, but could have it ready by Christmas. Well, it is going in the mail today!

I’ve been so busy finishing this up that I haven’t done any give-aways recently, but there are more coming, I promise! And some good ones, including Lyric Kinard’s Bead it Like You Mean It DVD and Ana Buzzalino’s new DVD offering from Quilting Arts/Interweave! Stay tuned.
