P is for…

… pals!  I met Natima earlier this year through the Quilt Festival online.  I was excited to make her acquaintance because of our shared South-east Asian heritage and love of quilting:

I embroidered this little tea towel and sent it over to Natima in Oz-land for her birthday:

Earlier, Natima has sent me the pattern for the Civil War Bride Quilt.  She will be my quilting buddy in this endeavor.  I am going to try doing this quilt by hand.  I haven’t started on it yet, but am in the process of starting a practice project before I jump into the CWB project because I want my CWB quilt to be perfect:

It truly is nice to have pals in one’s life, is it not?  Thanks for stopping by and being my pals!  I wish you a very beautiful day.

  1. Oh, my! Wendy ~ is the CWB quilt all applique? It is beautiful! Just look at all those teeny tiny little pieces! You do like a challenge, don’t you!? ;~}
    Personnally, I am allergic to applique! But I know yours WILL be ‘perfect’! All of your gorgeous quilts are. Can’t wait to see it and the practice piece, too!
    Blessings!

  2. The towel is so very nice and what a special thing for a friend to do. Handmade things make such special gifts. I like the CWB project. Would that be a block a month or every other month, just kidding. It would take me a long long time to do that one. Lots of work there but I know you will do it and it will be lovely.

  3. Wow — that CWB quilt is gorgeous!! I’ve seen the odd block here and there on various blogs and it is truly a masterpiece. With your talent, I’m sure yours will be stunning.

  4. I just got my copy of the CWB quilt today, I look forward to seeing your work, I’m hoping that seeing others work will give me encouragement to keep me going with it.

    Nice tea towel, Natima is lucky.
