April's First Quilt

Betty, most people call hr Mema, is one of our town's most experienced quilters. She has been the featured quilter at the Ramona Quilt show and she helps out at the local quilt shop, The Crazy 9 Patch. Mema alos mentors young women who want to learn how to quilt. She helps them with colors, fabrics and a pattern that they will be able to finish.

April is one of her students. This is April's first quilt. She made this quilt for her mother. She did a great job with her 1/4 inch. The quilt is flat and square. You would not know that it was made by a first-timer.

The quilt is done in wonderful golds and purple batiks fabric.

I used Signature cotton Mustard thread and did a freemotion quilting that included flowers, loops, curls and feathers. Very girly. I used Warm's Soft and Brite.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
