Apt 29: First contact by phone. She got my business card from "Sew Original", our local quilt shop.
May 03: Not often I get to post progress photos of the planning/piecing. Thanks, Barbara.
May 12: Ready for quilting ...tomorrow. Will use Bam Meander at 7.5".
May 13: Barbara is here. Those nice border corners left 3 of her 4 borders a bit wavy. We fixed those before loading. How? We pinned each border straight on the work table the way we wanted them, sprayed with a bit of water (non prewashed cotton will shrink ever so slight), a hair dryer then & an iron--voila! Perfectly flat. Needed to do a custom area around a thick pocket so only completed 3 rows of 7. Barbara will return to help finish tomorrow.
May 14: Quilted.
Jul 03, 2016: Barbara throws an incredible Fourth of July picnic for family, neighbors & friends. This year I was able to go. I met Adam, the grandson for whom this quilt was made. It was very nice to meet him & hear his excitement over his quilt that covers his bed at Yale.
