Hugs, Cindy :)
I started this quilt in Cindy's Design Workshop last March at Superior Threads in St. George. What a great class. Anyway, I had hoped to have it completed by the end of March so that I could share it with the participants in a class that I was going to be teaching. Well, that did not happen, so I shared it in its unfinished state. Again, I wanted it completed by July, as I was teaching the same class. Again they saw it incomplete. Once again, I was teaching the same class this October. Well, the same story. My Quilt Guild is having a Quilt Show November 2nd. I was bound and determined to have it finished and in the show. I stitched the last pearl at midnight, October 30th. It will hang in the show. I am so excited!!!
The sleeve is another napkin with the edging crocheted by Grandmother.
This quilt is my original design. The white fabrics were once dinner napkins that were hand stitched by my husband's Grandmother, Helen Knapp Storey (1889-1980). I incorporated them into this wall hanging to showcase her beautiful stitching. This is a lasting memory of a very special lady, Grandmother Storey.
