TIME FLIES

You've heard me refer to the Thread Magician, Linda Hibbert, aka SilverLiningsOriginals, (WHEN will I figure out how to link properly!!!)  She is a very special friend and the most extraordinary machine quilter.  A few years ago we began to talk about a project that would involve endangered species.  She, who has the energy of 15 women, started creating the patterns.  Unfortunately, her slug-like friend (me, the Giant Sloth)never had the same fire lit and the patterns sat untested.







All of that has changed.  I've been on a mission to complete my alarming stack of UFO's.  There is a package on the way to Colorado, as I write.  I hope that she will be pleased.  If I've learned anything this year, it is the painful lesson that time does indeed fly.

I see a lot of quilts at my store. It is the largest fabric store in the west. We have over 50,000 bolts of fabric for quilters. I never see this kind of work. Jody, I would love to learn this. I, as you know, am a beginner quilter. I am a lover of hand applique. Your piecing is breath-taking. I look forward to coming east and having you teach me this. So beautiful
