A New Quilter?

I brought a non-quilting friend with me to our guild's annual picnic last week and during the course of the evening she mentioned that she wished that she could make a quilt for her daughter-in-law who is battling cancer. I assured her that she could make a quilt and offered my help. Yesterday we got together for a crash course in quilting. As you can see from the photo, my student is a quick study! We used the disappearing nine patch pattern and had a great time playing with all of the different layout possibilities. Before the afternoon was over we had finished the center of the top, planned the borders and backing and even discussed her next quilt! I believe there may be a new quilter among us!

I do believe you have opened up a new world for her, and thanks for adding one more quilter to the bunch. It is really going to be pretty, tell her she has done a good job. Thimble thoughts

We all need someone like you in our lives to encourage us to do that thing we've been meaning to do! No time like the present!

She did such a great job! Of course, she had a fantastic teacher!

Oh well done Susan. I hope she gets the bug and has enjoyed making something so pretty. When you are unwell the feel of being wrapped in a lovingly made quilt is so special.
