These are pictures of guilt tops I donated (with backings and bindings) in the Fall to the Flathead Quilters Guild Outreach program in Kalispell, MT. They will quilt them and bind them to use in support of the many requests they have. They are all in the twin size range, approximately 75”’x 90”. There is a tumbler in fall colors, a disappearing 9 patch in red, white and blue, 3 of your Bullseye pattern (redrafted into 15” blocks) all done in batiks, each with a different border, and a Scrap Vortex and 3 string pieced tops, all in red, black and white. 9 shown plus another which I did not get a photo of. My granddaughters perched themselves on the tailgate of my Tundra and reached to the sky so that I could get these pictures. It was a beautiful October day in Kalispell.
I have 4 more Bullseye tops under construction plus way too many other projects. I am not participating in your DD challenge, but I try to get done what I can. I actually live in Spokane Valley, WA, about 4 hours from Kalispell. It was a fun grandma and granddaughters long getaway weekend that had a trail ride near Glacier Park thrown in.
I visited your shop twice, emailed quite awhile back, sometimes comment on your blog, and read all your posts about your farm, family and friends, quilts, animals, adventures … your life’s ups and downs, trials and tribulations, accomplishments and celebrations.
It took me awhile to share this, but I want you to know what an inspiration you are. I appreciate all that you do.
Thank you, Sandy! This was such fun and I feel like a slug compared to you! Seeing those bullseye quilts again is pretty tempting to start another one. I have also made a scrap vortex and loved doing it so maybe that’s what I should start on New Year’s Day instead of what I had already planned. Planning is the best part for me – I love pulling the fabrics and combining them. It’s the quilting and especially the binding that I hate. When I try to do the binding by hand my fingers go to sleep just putting on a thimble and trying to hold on to the needle. Danged old fingers!!!!
Wasn’t this fun? Thanks again, Sandy!
