A visit with my Q bud!

I had a really nice time today visiting with my friend Susan, having lunch and making the craft store rounds!  AND I got to see her latest competition quilt she finished and it is AMAZING!!!  I can't show you pics as she'll be entering in shows this year but when she has her first win, I will post it immediately!  

For those who follow my blog, you may remember this quilt Susan made and I posted about in 2012.   

Susan has done well with this quilt....but just wait until her next masterpiece is on display!
Susan has this unqiue reverse applique method that she taught me and I used to create my 'Georgia on my Mind' piece.  I love the method but it is very labor intensive but....with great results!  

And this is another of her creations..Susan designed this quilt for the 2013 Jacob's Ladder themed New Quilts from an Old Favorite annual contest.  Her quilt was published in the AQS book featuring the winners and finalists.  I really like this quilt too.  

Susan is such a perfectionist when it comes to her quilting and she certainly inspires me!  Now if I could get some of her to rub off on me!   She's a delightful person and a giving lady!   Check out the gift she gave me today!

First, I love the Christmas bag!  Check out the 2" x 6" ruler!  I have a one inch ruler I use but isn't this 2" clever!  I've never seen one before!  I know for sure this will come in handy!!  And the Sew Arty is a pin nice of Susan to think of me!  I'm so lucky to call Susan my friend!  And a talented one at that!  


  1. Can't wait to see her latest! She's devoted to her craft for sure.

  2. Friendships that share creative bliss are the best. Her quilts are amazing. Very sweet gifts she gave you. Joyful Creating...
