Went to see a dear friend, Munirah (Red & White Twister Quilt) to work with her granddaughters planning quilts they would like. And to get one of her awesome haircuts. NO ONE else has cut my hair like I like it except her for nearly 20 years.
Sep 17, 2019: Lisa & I spent several hours today exploring quilt ideas. Lisa decided on a Yellow Brick Road quilt using Wilmington Jewels Golden State 10" Squares (24 pieces). I think I have the right fabrics here. Using the EQ7 mock-up for Dorothy's 2013 quilt, our fabrics replaced hers automatically. The actual layout will of course be whatever I decide on at the time. Lisa now needs to select her backing, border & binding fabrics. Ready to order once that is done. It will be awhile before I get to piece this but it will happen.
Sep 18: More brainstorming ideas.
Sep 19: We both took a break.
Sep 20: Back to brainstorming... I have moved our planning details to the infamous dot screen (the dot/period on the menu is not dust on your screen but a link to semi hidden playground for ideas. I is easier to use this mode than emailing.
John (JR) Garland is a dear friend since 2005, former neighbor, and Vietnam veteran.

WoW - Stands for Will O'Wisp, the quilt pattern from Not Your Grandmother's Log Cabin book.
This is my second one. It really is a log cabin quilt but with 60 instead of 90 degree angles.

The Real Costume
PS: Anyone who has sent more than 70 quilts always gets top priority even over mine.
If your quilt is time sensitive, be sure to let me know.
Otherwise follow the blog to see what mischief I am up to.
Terry & Linda Roush tell me this hand pieced quilt was made by a family friend in southern Ohio who was 90 years old
when she completed it. She died about a year ago but was still making quilts for friends until she passed. Wow!
