Judy B. is such a sweetheart. It’s been 3 years in a row, now, that she’s had me quilt a quilt for her to donate to her family at their annual family reunion. She not only purchases the fabric and makes it herself, she pays me to quilt it. And, then, she turns around and GIVES it to her extended family to be used in a family auction to raise money for family needs; perhaps someone’s house burned down and the family needs to start from scratch rebuilding their home, or someone’s had a medical emergency and needs help paying bills, or any other number of needs or emergencies one could name. Isn’t that freakin’ awesome???
So, here is her latest quilt for the family auction to be held in a couple more weeks; the end of May.
She always does such a great job of coming up with an interesting and unique quilt for these auctions! What do you think of this one? I think the blocks look like they could be twisted log cabin blocks.
Those points “told me” this quilt needed curvy quilting. So, I added some flowers and leaves and some swirls. But, look at this flower. Doesn’t it remind you of a chicken head? Or, is it just me?
This one’s better.
This is where I snuck in the secret message. Can you see it? 🙂
Okay, let’s turn it around to the back side. Maybe you can make it out there.
Can you read backwards? Okay, this is what it says;
“Made by yours truly…Judy B…with much love.”
In the meantime, watch out for “chickens crossing” the quilt to get to the dark side. 😉
Hope you enjoyed!
