For decades and decades, I swore I would never quilt. HA! NEVER say never....it's a sure jinx.
My sister Ginny, who is shown here, is the temptress. When we were both expecting our first grandchildren, she called with the info that her neighborhood church ladies were having a Quilting Saturday, and for $15.00, they would provide a pre-cut I Spy Quilt, and we could stay and eat lunch and quilt. That was my first attempt at quilting, and the oldest grandchild is now 9 years old. After the first attempt, I decided to take a class, which was Buggy Barn Stars. I taught Ginny how to "slash and gash" the pile of fat quarters, and she taught her daughter Kristy, who made these star squares.....years ago. Ginny added the white borders, and then it sat, like so many quilts seem to do, in the UFO pile. (UnFinished Object) When Kristy was expecting her first baby, two years ago, I told them I would do the long arm stitching on it. Ginny was supposed to do the binding, but now that Max is nearly two, I stole the quilt away and finally finished it. Here is a very happy Ginny who drove the quilt to San Francisco, Kristy and Max. Yea! Happy Day. One more UFO off the list.
