When I started formally offering classes, Judy was one of the faithful that attended my once a month Saturday class. She wanted to make a large lap sized quilt as a gift. Judy liked the bags and items I had made for her over the years so I expected she would want to start with something smaller and simpler.
I told her it would take quite a while only working on it a couple of hours a month, but she was still eager to make a quilt. It did take her over 2 years but that is not a long time considering the number of Saturday classes she was unable to attend.
We spent a work lunch break at a nearby Big Box store so she could pick out fabrics in her color choices.
FINISHED!Funny thing is, as long as it took and as much as she didn’t like maneuvering that 60 x 80 quilt under the machine she is now working on a king size quilt (110 x 120) on a small home machine (it can be done quilters).
Who would have thought?
She said she won’t do it again, but knowing her generous heart I wouldn’t be surprised if there aren’t some smaller donation quilts in her future, after the smaller items she said are next on her list.
Judy, you have done a great job!
Enjoy the Journey, Jackie
