Vintage Moments

Vintage Moments by Marsha McClosky is a quilt that I finished last year. My quilter finished it last week and I put on the binding today. It is just a happy, calming quilt!

I purchased the pattern when I first started quilting. I knew I did not have the skills to make this quilt so I purchased the 30's reproduction fabric as I found it and waited for my piecing skills to improve. I practiced making Lemoyne stars and was unhappy with the results. I made a small wall quilt from four of the stars and was surprised at how nice they looked. Lemoyne stars became much easier to sew after seventeen of them. I really found out that precise cutting of the pieces was important with this quilt.

The quilters at the local quilt show showed it to their network group and received many compliments. The quilting is complimentary without overwhelming the quilt design. I am very happy with this quilt.

That is a fabulous quilt Jane. Sure looks like a lot of work. I just love the colors and the LAQuilting is really something.

Hope you are feeling better now and that the special treatment gets easier. Good for you on getting the right person to take care of the IV.

I am feeling good. I just want my medical people to work "with me" not work "on me". Treating them well has started to pay dividends for me.
