Lissa's Quilt

Lissa is home and she got her quilt. Jane organized Lissa's quilt and she did such a good job getting all the 4 patches in.  Mel volunteered to piece the top and I volunteered to quilt her quilt. Mel did an excellent job with the piecing. I had so much fun quilting Lissa's quilt and I am so glad I could be part of this beautiful quilt. I took a few pictures of the quilt.
This is the scrappy backing made from the leftover squares.

 A few of the signatures and messages on the back of the quilt. Please visit Mel and Jane's blog to see Lissa and her quilt. She look so happy to be home!
I want to show two quilts I quilted.  The first one is for Kim. It is a black and white quilt with appliqued flowers and rick rack.
 I love the words she put around the quilt: achieve, laugh, imagine, believe, live and dream (things we should do everyday).

 White polka dot backing.
This is my dear friend Jan's quilt. She asked me to quilt her quilt in black thread.
 These are all civil war reproduction fabrics.
 I really like the black paisley border.
 She also surprised me with an early Chrismas gift.  As a quilter, I love to get fabric. Who doesn't?
 The fabric is so pretty folded with the black ribbon, it is almost too pretty to open.  I have it on the shelf above my sewing I can look at it all the time. Thanks Jan!
Happy Quilting!
