This quilt uses fabrics from several sources & showcases Joan's skill at using even small bits of fabric to make something beautiful ... in her words ... "many lives touching one who has given much."
Joan has shared her story on our J&L Quilters site. Enjoy.
Dec 12: Joan decided to take advantage of "virtual shipping" this holiday season. The 10th is the day she was ready to ship with expected delivery Dec 12.
Jan 05: Quilt top arrived.
Jan 06: Prepping. Note that prepping, pattern, thread and density selelctions & loading are all part of the setup process. We've decided on IQ pattern Minaret by Gali Design from Willow Leaf Studio. (Thanks, Grace, for finding this one.) This is not your standard panto. Instead it consists to two separate alternating patterns that must then be manulated to nest nicely. There is a 3rd pattern in the set for the top row which would otherwise stitch as 2 rows. If you don't follow all that, just leave it to me.
