This quilt is one of mine and it is surely a Blast from the Past. It was a Block of the Month by Pat Sloan titled Circle of Friends. I’m guessing 2005 or so? Jolene, Sheila, and I all participated. Jolene’s was quilted by me and in a guild show and I’m thinking it got a ribbon. Then I quilted Sheila’s. Mine has languished in the To Be Quilted closet for probably ten years or more. The other day I decided it was time to quilt something for me and I dug around in the closet. And there it was. I decided to not do custom quilting on it but to do a pretty edge to edge. One – I wanted it DONE. Two – I’ve learned a lot in the twelve years I’ve been longarm quilting and this top is very very busy. Custom quilting can get lost. Three – I’ve gotten over my feeling that applique should not just be quilted over. DONE is better than hanging in a closet and as soon as my binder gets the binding on it will grace my spare bedroom (also known as Jolene’s room).
