A quiet moment between friend


I revisited a pattern that I made a few years ago. It’s one of my favorites so thought I would make another one.
My friend Glen just found out her beloved dog Chloe passed away when she was in Europe on vacation. This one is dedicated to you Chloe 😞

I especially like the moon quilting on this. 


In other news I am going to do a 100 day project, ever heard of it? You lick something creative and do it every day for 100 days. At the end you are either completely bonkers or you have 100 of something and hopefully have learned something along the way. If nothing else you learn commitment and discipline. And I can sure use that. I can’t guarantee I will make it to 100 days but I’m going to give it a go! I have formed a Facebook group called 100 Days project for quilters in the hopes that if I lost my every day project it will keep me accountable. I have always been in love with Linda McLaughlins weekly leaf projects so am going to do am”daily leaf”. Linda stitches hers and they are wonderful but I will do a combination of printing, painting, free motion and maybe applique. Not sure what form each day will take but it will be a different leaf every day.

Wanna join us? There are like 20 people in the group so far. You can start whenever you want, the only rule is that you be kind.

  1. This quilt is adorable. I'm sure your friend will love it.
    I briefly considered the 100 day project but I travel too much to do it. Good luck with yours.

  2. What a delightful piece -- and a lovely tribute to your friend and her pet. I too like the quilting in the moon...but even more that the moon is lavender coloured. It gives the piece a certain...I don't know...tenderness, I think.
