#4

In spite of playing with postcards this morning, I did manage to get a little work done. This Roman Stripes was pieced by Mom and will be donated via the Angel Tree at her church in December. Quilted with my Circle Lord Baptist Fan Template, it's #4 of 10 to be quilted by the end of May ....I'm beginning to wonder if I'm going to get through my list in the next couple weeks.

This next photo is for Karen, she commented that my *desk* was pretty clean the other day only I was showing a photo of my kitchen island with all the mail that had come while I was out of town....as you can see, my desk is not neat at all which is probably why I was going through the mail in the kitchen.

WOW - That is a beautiful quilt with the contrast between the Baptist fans and the geometric piecing!

I gotta learn to do the Baptist fan freehand or invest in a pantograph. Love it!

That fan pattern really makes your quilt tops come alive. I love it. Your mom does a great job! Jennifer

Mary, two favorites of mine...the roman stripe and fan pattern. Your mom did such a good job on the quilt top and you on the quilting. The quilt is wonderful. It is like a match made in heaven!

What a neat quilt, I love the baptist fan pattern on scrap quilts, it always looks so good.

Hi MAry, what a clever idea, you moved to the kitchen for the photo. hahahaha

ah, a desk that looks like the top of my refrigerator! I hate than DH puts "important stuff" up there, does he think if I have to drag a chair over to reach it I don't notice it's there??

Oh dear Mary - I think you need a filing cabinet! I file everything and that helps keep my desk clear! Lovely quilting though - I can understand why you want to quilt instead of file - me too!
Cheers! Evelyn

Don't you just love that template! It looks gorgeous on that top - adds so much dimension.
