For Jan in Arizona.....

Nancy no blog made this fantastic horse wall hanging for her son's girlfriend. Nancy no blog used to live in Arizona and her friend wanted to see this quilt so I am featuring it here for Jan's pleasure (and of course all of you)... She bought a kit with the pattern, but wasn't keen on all the fabrics so she also went shopping and added some batiks... She did fusible raw edge applique and then quilted it. She did a wonderful job. It's hard to tell the size from the photo, but it is about 23"x28....

That date is NOT a mistake. Yes, it was for Christmas 2008....me thinks Nancy needs to get going on this year so she won't be so behind this Christmas...








I have photos from my retreat, but I can't find my camera. I know it is in the house somewhere, but dang if I can put my hands on it. As soon as I find it, I will show you all what we worked on. We did have a beautiful weekend. We drove down Thursday night after dinner and sewed all day Friday and Saturday...

I promise to look for the camera tomorrow.

really...

Happy Sewing,
Nancy
