Tuesday Archives

Val's Quilting Studio

This is my first time participating in Val's Quilting Studio Tuesday Archives.  Simply share an old post that goes with the week's theme.  She is using the alphabet to pick a theme and this week is 'Apples' or 'Applique'.

I found an old post HERE with a row quilt with a row of apples in it. 


This quilt became something special as it went on to be quilted by Sue Daurio.  If you are not familiar with Sue's work - oh you must go see and drool.


Sue and I colaborated to make this quilt a special gift for a special person.  Sarah Craig at Confessions of a Fabric Addict works with her quilt ministry in making and donating so many quilts to those that need to be wrapped in a warm hug.  They rely on donations and I just love sending them blocks and flimsies.  But Sarah herself came upon a time when she needed to be wrapped in warm hugs.  So this quilt went to her - one special lady.  You can click HERE to see more of this quilt up close.

See if you can find an old 'apple' or 'applique' post and share over at Val's.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon
