Just look at these smiling faces! You've seen them before with other finishes and this one is just as stunning.
Debbie and her mom, Grace, hand pieced and hand quilted this lovely piece. The pattern is from Monthly Bliss 1 (designed by yours truly!). Debbie and Grace work as a team on most of their quilts, and Grace loves to hand piece. In fact, she's made several quilts' worth of several of these blocks for other projects. She is also the hand quilter of this gem.
The class was held at O'Susannah's in Watkins Glen. That's Sue, the owner, on the left taking a look.
Here you can see a bit of the quilting and a close-up of the blocks.
Can we say "proud"? Yes, I am! Well done, Ladies!
I've got a new hexagon piece cut out which I will show as it progresses. The name? "Protecting Peewee". Intrigued?
P.S. I just finished listening to Fool Me Twice by Michael Brandman (for Robert B. Parker) and am starting Delusion in Death by J.D. Robb.
