Memory Quilt

 This  is called "Plackets & Pockets".  I  found I was doing a lot of  'membering' while quilting this Memory quilt.  I did a right angle meander, and was
able to avoid  the odd bumpy bit created by a pocket or a placket.  It was well constructed and sewed up nicely.

And another trip down memory lane, I entered our local Fall Fair 
Here it is finished, spring of 2010.
This one is for Irene's Birthday, It was finished in time for the Fall Fair, and she hasn't had her next birthday so all is good.

Both of these quilts received prizes.

I also entered a wall hanging and table runner...more winners!  I ROCK  :))
Happy Day.

Back at work....Star Sampler

Summer is over in a flurry of activity and then back to quilting.....
The colours in the photo, do not do this quilt  justice, the red is a very rich colour and the blue/green is one of those happy colour surprises it just don't show in these photos....
 Lots of stitch in the ditch, filler stitch and filled vine in the red sashings.  It's a lovely piece, on either side.

Happy Tuesday,
