Making the Quilt & Shield
Frances Hunt's heirloom quilts were pieced and given to her by her Aunt Emma. She wants them finished & used.The 1st two are to be Christmas presents for her daughters, the 3rd is for herself. She wants all three of them enlarged with enough border to make them queen size with an 8" drop. She took them home to select fabrics. She & her husband want to participate in the longarming process when their schedules allow. Any assistance I can get handling, pressing, loading and rolling such large quilts would be welcomed, especially at this late date.
Nov 12: Frances & husband dropped by with the pieced tops. We worked well into the evening measuring, planning and shopping for backing & border fabrics.
Nov 13: Spent the day canceling an order, locating fabric options, doing quotes, emailing & chatting on the phone.
Nov 14: Started this BLOG post.
Nov 15: Added backing images selected/ordered by Francis.
Nov 17: Backing fabrics are here. Will pre-wash after Frances confirms this is what she wants.
