A couple of beautiful Quilts of Valor made by Joyce. The first is one for her hubby. She has embroidered all of the locations her husband served while in the military. What a keepsake!
Joyce’s hubby’s QOV
This second Quilt of Valor is another for one of Joyce’s family members. What a fabulous quilt, to be given with love and thankfulness!
Another QOV for Joyce’s family member. So beautiful.
Recently returned from a great show in Manchester, New Hampshire. This trip was not in the plans but an opportunity presented itself and, well, when does a quilter turn down a great opportunity to smooze with other quilters. Of course we left the spring heat of Houston and headed to a somewhat snow-covered Boston and Manchester area.
On my way to a great quilt show! Flying in to Boston
I have to admit, these next two pictures are still making me chuckle. The first is a picture of an elevator I had to opportunity to push the buttons on. Makes you wonder just what the BS button was really meant for. The obvious answer was Bus Station since that’s where the elevator stopped, but sure does make you wonder.
Well now, this is in an elevator in Manchester, New Hampshire…BS ????
The second, and even more amusing thing we found was on the menu at an Italian restaurant, and NO, I didn’t try it! Read the Cinghiale under Plates. The waiter assured us it was incredible and very tender!
Happened to be traveling along with other friends, most from the Houston area and Linda, from Sante Fe, New Mexico. Had a great time and learned so much I can’t wait to apply to new quilting adventures.
What a piece of perfection
It always amazes me just how beautiful each and every quilt is, whether a simply pieced or one with great difficulty, a needle turned applique quilt or a machine completed one. It’s no wonder why quilting is a craft of the centuries. Here are a couple of quilts I have finished for clients lately. The first is a beautiful quilt appliqued by Joyce. What an artist. She so carefully stitches these intricate pieces that none of her stitches rare visible. Way to go Joyce!

Cyndi does some great pieced quilts. Don’t you love the colors! Both of these just jump out, each in their own way. The heart quilt is a gift to her 90+ mom. She will be thrilled.
