And it's about daggone time too! The "Butterflies" meaning the "quilt" that my friend Sue and I made together for a "special someone" who is living life with Crohn's Disease. It was made in memory of our Daughter, Michelle (Micki) and in honor of Sue's Dad and Dear Sis, who are both dealing with Crohn's every day. It was supposed to be our project for 2009! I appliqued the "butterfiles" and Sue did all the piecing ... all within schedule! Then when it landed back on my doorstep, I was to do the "quilting" and the "binding;" and I am sooooooo ashamed that it took me so long! My only excuse is that "life" gets in the way sometimes; but all is OK now cuz it's a done deal :)
As hard as I try, I can't "drive" my machine around shapes! Well, I can, but the lines won't be straight, so I opted to do some small "stippling" around the butterflies w/some "doodling" in the pieced blocks. Once a "doodler," always a "doodler!"
Thanks so much Sue! You did a lovely job my dear :)
