Cathy's First Quilt


Cathy and I worked together for two years at a county Health Department many, many years ago. She moved away to take a job in another county. Over the years we stayed in touch. Then I moved and now WE live in the same county!
We got together for lunch during the Christmas holidays. Her children are now grown, her husband has a hobby making things out of wood and Cathy wants to learn how to make quilts. Yah!
She brought her sewing machine over to the house and we talked about quilting fabrics, sewing machines, quilting supplies and we SEWED. After only three sewing sessions, this is a picture of Cathy and her first quilt, a 51" x 70" scrap strip quilt with two borders. It's bright, colorful and makes you smile. She did good! I'm so proud :D
After Cathy pieces the backing, we'll make a quilt sandwich ready for quilting and binding.

What a bright, fun quilt! Isn't it fun to share with a friend? I've been sharing with my SIL - and to watch the joy in each step is so wonderful.

Great choice for a first quilt. The colors are lovely. I wish I had a friend close enough to sew with. I'm sure it's lots of fun for both of you.
