Saturday's work

Three quilts for three sisters. There once were three sisters, who's Mother had embroidered 6 identical quilt blocks for them. I was chosen to set them together. After looking back (thank you blogger) I see it is usually a year apart that I have been asked to make another quilt.

This one is today's project. I've been working on it this week. This one is for Joanie. As you can see I machine appliqued a rose in the plain white center blocks. I love this fabric. Yes it was a little more expensive. But in this small town with only 3 places to buy fabric, you are limited to just how many blues you can find.
I don't quilt them. They take them to a high school friend of mine and she machine quilts them. I will then bind them.
First I made Roseann's quilt in October of 2008. I sewed Mary Jane's quilt in September 2009. After Joanie's is finished, I think my job is over. Unless I find out that their Mother made blocks for the only brother! But that might not be until 2011.
