Ruth's Quilt




Here are a couple of pictures one is of backside of the quilt and the other is top side. The quilter at the point of the pictures had not put the waves in and it wasn't sewn together yet. But you have the idea what it looked like. It was beautiful and Ruth and John really liked it. The squares were done by different members of Cross Stitching for Charity. Barb (Barb's Stitches in my blog roll)and a friend of hers did the quilting and sewed the quilt together. It was beautiful. The waves hitting the Lighthouses aren't there but on the finished quilt really added to it. Everything blended together so well. And they got it done very quickly as we just didn't have a whole lot of time to get the quilt to Ruth as we don't know how much longer she'll live.

How was everyon'e Easter? Mine was nice and noisy. With all the kids around but it was fun. Of course my brother's dog thought he was King of the day as the kids chased him around outside and he loved it. He liked seeing everyone. This dog was rescued from a very abusive home. When my brother and sister-in-law first got him he just shook whenever he saw people and he was nothing but skin and bones. Now he greets people and has filled up. His days of being abused are long behind him.

I'm working on a farm square for Love Quilts Farm Quilt for any child. It's from an old Stoney Creek Book called Love Spoken Here. The piece is a horse in a barn being fed apples from a child and a couple of roosters eating seeds. Now the horse is done it should go quicker. It took forever to get the horse done. I'll post a picture in the next day or two.

Until next time Happy Stitching!
