The Masterpiece by Javan

The Masterpiece by Javan

We are born into the world like a blank canvas and each person that crosses our path takes up the brush and makes his mark upon our surface

So it is that we develop

But we must realize there comes a day that we must take up the brush and finish the work

For only we can determine if we are to be just another painting or a Masterpiece. Javan

What We Do With Love - June is Over and Here is the Finish

Quilts are special. They are a gift of love made with love by people who love what they're doing.
 ~ Elizabeth Gentry

My June UFO Challenge finish from Patchwork Times.

This is The Applique Sampler by Becky Goldsmith from the book The New Applique Sampler by Linda Jenkins and Becky Goldsmith.
I learned to applique from this book - with a wonderful step-by-step process that is easy to understand and follow.
I also took a class when Becky came to symposium, and realized that I really had learned her technique from this book.
The class was icing on the cake because I got to see her trunk show and ask all my questions
. This little quilt was a joy to finish and I really love applique, The Piece 'O Cake way.
All the backgrounds are a different polka dot and is really a happy little quilt that pleases me and tickles my fancy. Just plain makes me happy!

Another quote that I love and from a dear friend -

Why we Quilt - It is the knowledge that while those quilts are being made, each stitch holds a private thought, a prayer, a wish or a dream. ~ Pat Taylor

Judy C sends you "warm wishes" from NC for a fantastic 4th of July celebration full of family and friends and patriotism.
