Done!

The quilt I promised for my Tai Chi group’s fundraiser tonight is done. With minutes to spare. I was so jet lagged I regretted having promised, but after a week of recuperating, I put the pedal to the metal (my sewing machine foot pedal) and pounded it out. In less than a week! It’s a new record.

The theme is Native American Culture.

QuiltThis is a panel quilt. I didn’t do any of that exquisite fabric painting. I merely trimmed it with borders.

machine quiltingDue to time constraints I had to resort to crazy, undulating machine quilting.

Hope they like it and I hope the raffle brings in a lot of dough. Now I gotta go deliver it.

    Great job, Irma! And even more amazing given the short time, the travel fatigue, etc. Do you get to take a good rest and take care of yourself, now?

      Thanks, Wren. Quilting is therapeutic for me. I just had to make sure my foggy brain was sharp enough before I took to the rotary cutter!
