I had the honour of quilting this very special quilt this week. It was pieced by Adele who was a local guild members that passed away in December. Adele had an amazing ability to create quilts from her scraps that looked fabulous. Her eye for color was admired by all her friends and I was always drawn to her quilts at every quilt show. I would study them and try to figure out how she could combine fabrics that I would never think to put together and make them look great! She also was very skilled at hand appliqué and hand quilted most of her quilts. She was a very modest lady who didn’t understand why we would fuss over her quilts, a true sweetheart to all that knew her. Her presences is greatly missed at our meeting.
Adele had not completed the appliqué on this top so her good friend Marg finished the remaining work so Adele’s children could have another heirloom quilt from their mother.
I quilted free hand 3’s and E’s in the center across the stars and the CC’d the HSTs. I then SID around the appliqué and stippled the background.
We woke up to more snow today just after all Sundays snow melted. This would be a pretty picture if it wasn't April.
