A swirly finish……………..

For a young man who thoroughly loves basketball.  This quilt is for a client/friend of mine. The stitching pattern is one that she suggested and it works so perfectly!! Always fun to work on a nicely constructed project!!!

Kathy's quilt & '3rd hands' 006

It’s a generous 77”x 77”………a bit wider than my in-house quilt holder can easily hold! (No going outdoors for photos these days………..we may even be getting a bit moldy!!!) The sports themed fabric is so perfect!!!!!!

I used Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly (70 wt) in “Turkey Red” for both top and bobbin thread. That thread sews like a dream and no lint!!!!

    Hi! This is great looking, very very cool for a guy. I am sure he will treasure it.
    Love the colors too!

    I enjoyed looking at your quilt club pics too! What a great group of friends! I take photos of all the quilty creations at my QC and share them with my mom.
    I would love to take her to quilt club but she wouldn’t last… She had a stroke last year and poops out easy now. It is so fun to share the pics though

    Happy week end

      I’m so glad you like the group project photos. It’s always so much fun to see what other groups in other neighborhoods are doing. Sorry about your mom. We don’t appreciate ‘stamina’ until we have none!!!!! Hugs…………..
