Mar 11: Got a call from Ada wanting to come do another quilt. She sent pictures & quilting ideas started popping. I am thinking of using multiple pantos--one for the center, one for the blockish border & one for the outer border. We will figure it all out Monday when she and her daughter bring the quilt.
Mar 14: Ada & I had a lot of fun planning her quilt patterns today. This quilt is for newborn twins. Will use Bottom Line Silver thread & Dream Orient bamboo/silk batting.
Mar 19: Prepped & loaded ready to quilt tomorrow.
Mar 20: Quilted.
Oct 12: Got a call & then a visit from Ada Blackwell here in NC. A woman who knows her mind, she went home to finish what we started...picking a pattern for each of her 72 blocks. Each block is 4 nested squares, beautifully pieced & coordinated. Truly a work of art. Our creation won't show up so much on the front but the off-white muslin backing is the incentive to create a whole cloth effect that will be stunning. We will use a variegated So Fine# 40 thread with two neutral shades.
Oct 20: Complete change of plans to a pantograph, Four Leaf Clover Swirls, and Small Border 10, both by Vicki Maleski. Ordered.
Oct 21: Prepped & loaded. IQ is programmed.
Oct 22: Quilting.
Oct 23: Quilted. When Ada & daughter, Audrey, picked up the quilt, they insisted on taking me to lunch. And Ada bought me a little gift. Now that is gratuity & and very much appreciated.
