My Quilting Job is Never Boring!

My friend and customer, Thankful, had to have surgery a couple weeks ago and now has her arm in a cast.  She called me last week and asked for a "quilting date for her cast"!

Of course, I said YES - I can fit you in!

Her granddaughters decoupaged the fabric on to the cast last night.  She bought some paint markers in gold, silver, and white and came to my house for her quilting date.  We sat at the kitchen table and kept trading places as I added the stitching with the markers.

I started "stitching" with the markers....

I added all her granddaughter's names as they made the quilt --- I just quilted it!

I took an Ussie or a Selfie, but at this point Thankful's arm was under my arm, as I was drawing on the stitches on the underpart of the cast.

The gold, silver, and white made for a nice combination for the quilting.

As I said,  "My Quilting Job is never boring!"

Enjoy May with my friends!
