Sewing and Quilting
My older sister came to visit. She and her husband served an LDS Mission in Malawi Africa. Before they came home, she bought some great fabric. Then we spent about 3 hours in Wal Mart choosing some coordinating fabrics and figuring out how much to purchase of each peace. Basically we made a border around each African piece.
She spent a week at my place cutting and sewing the tops of four quilts. In my addled brain state, I forgot to take pictures of each quilt top. Grrrrr.
Now she came again for a few days, (I kidnaped her from choir and brought her home.)
Here are some pictures of her hard work.
The second picture shows the clever back she pieced.
notice my three dolls (my little angels) standing in the background. I named them after my sister and my two nieces who all died, hence-angels, in infancy: Connie, on the chair, Cristy, the standing brunette and Heidi the blond.
The last picture shows the pointed edge she made.
I think for a first time quilt she did a pretty wonderful job. Way to Go Sis!
