Happy Friday! Just in time for a visit to NJ, I finished a special Birthday Gift for my friend, Susan. She was Jill's best friend and creative partner.
You may be thinking "that's it?" As I approached this project, it was very difficult for me to put "me" into it. I just wanted it to be Jill's. This was the last thing on her design wall. I decided to put them together and add the borders and just let it be.
My plan is to make this same quit for my sewing room. I have to make 2 blocks first. I wanted Susan to have all Jill blocks.
Wheel of Fortune - Blocks Made by Jill Reid 2014
I used my home made fan stencil and added an extra line in each blade. **Stencil update** The company I sent artwork to can not produce it because it is too large for their equipment. I'll be pursuing alternatives.
It looks good with my cheddar nine patches that are on the design wall.
I used the border print with the lavender on the back. Purple was one of Jill's favorite fabric colors and her collection really reflected that!
The machine quilting isn't perfect, so it's just right to me. You can see where I backtracked. I used my walking foot.
Have a great weekend. My buddy Susan is coming on Sunday to assist in the swap. Here is what the sewing room looks like - a post office!
I won ring toss last weekend at the fair, meet "Ruff" coco isn't pleased....
And if you ever wondered, here is what 6oo pounds of butter looks like. It took 12,000 gallons of milk.
