Back in September the ladies in my quilt guild who wanted to participate, brought 5 fat quarters, put them in a brown paper bag, (no names), we numbered the bags,....drew numbers and you picked up the bag with your number on it. You had 2 months to make your person a completed project out of the fat quarters they put in their bag. You could add more fabric to it if you wanted too, but you HAD to use their FQ's.
This is what I was blessed with ! My sweet friend Doniene made me this table topper/wall hanging from the FQ's I put in my bag and those pumpkins with the wonderful scent of cinnamon and cloves.
The topper is hand and machine quilted, needle turn appliqued and embroidered. The card inside the bag said she prayed for my family and me while she stitched. There is a picture of us exchanging, but I was crying and didn't want you to have to look at it. If you want to see more of the exchanges from that day, your welcome to click HERE
I drew Wanda's name and made her this table runner and little Edyta Sitar pin cushion from the FQ's she put in her bag. I wanted you to see this picture of Wanda, other wise I would have cropped my head off and hers would have come off too. I think she is just the prettiest lady !
These flowers and card are from "The Little Cowboy" and his parents.
The perfect center piece for our Thanksgiving table.
