Quilts are special. They are a gift of love made with love by people who love what they're doing.
~ Elizabeth Gentry
An now .... 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 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 it is really a happy little quilt that pleases me and tickles my fancy.
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
