Anne's Quilt
I have lots of things I'm thinking about writing but...soon maybe. However, I have been enjoying reading about quilters and projects. It is nice to be able to read past posts. Yesterday I spent time enjoying Quiltgranny Sharon. Great site.

I also checked into Beth Ferrier's site (Applewd.com/). I've watched it develop for years. I especially like her comments on her home page. She lives only aobut 50 miles from me so I consider her a neighbor. Really, with this internet, we are all neighbors but she lives in a place where I have physically been. I have made a huge quilt for my DDin-law based on one of Beth's patterns. It is from oriential-type fabrics and started out to be king size. The pictures are with it on my king size bed but Anne's bed is so elevated that I had to add a huge border. It wasn't originally made for her but she fell in love with it so I gave it to her. Her family is big on birthday presents while our family only shares greeting with the adults. I told her it was her birthday present for the rest of her life. Every year on her birthday she sends me a thank you note for her quilt. VBS

The quilt is so beautiful. And to have it fit her bed so nicely. No wonder she sends a thank you note each year.

I hope you're having a nice day.

Oh wow, this is beautiful! Beth does make great designs, doesn't she. So, are you making her newer ones? I am working on two of hers this year. Her 2004 Moondance and 2006 Lilibeth's Garden. They are both super. Lilibeth's is a lot less difficult than Moondance.
