ORANGE SLICES COMPLETE!
Wednesday, 04 March 2009 22:44

AHHH!  The Orange Slices Quilt is complete and I am thrilled with how it turned out!  I have done a lot of quilts in my life with a piano key border, but this one is offset and wonky.  The outcome of a quilt that is just a bit "off kilter" is amazing!  Be sure to click on the picture to enlarge it and check out the cool outside border.  I am dropping my Orange Slices Quilt and my Purple Crazy Coins Quilt off to my long arm quilter, Ms. Fannie in Anderson, SC.  Fannie is one of those gals you just instantly like, from the moment you meet her.  She loves your quilt as if it was her own, and she treats it accordingly.  I am so lucky to have her skill available to me, as it helps me get my bigger projects quilted, so I can bind them and put them in a  store display.  Thank you Fannie, you're the BEST!

Now, here is a little funny for all you quilters out there who have read my blog once or twice.  My sister Michelle (you know, the one who cut her "cowlick" out of her hair as a child on Easter Sunday morning)  cracks me up on a daily basis.  Her sense of humor is one of her best attributes!  I was telling her the other day about how I use Ms. Fannie's long arm quilting service and after a short pause she says to me..."Is that a woman with a really LONG arm, who quilts"?  I almost fell off my chair as she laughed so hard she could hardly catch her breath!  When Michelle asks me goofy questions like this about quilting, I laugh and think, this is WHY Mrs. Martin, from 8th grade Home Ec class said to Michelle...step AWAY from the Sewing Machine, and find yourself a different hobby!

I'm so glad I can provide some inspiration to your blogging. I am pretty sure Mrs. Martin told me to pick a new hobby after I made a shirt for class....one arm was 3/4 sleeved and the other was short sleeved.......on the same shirt! Not one of my better days in 8th grade Home Ec. Just checking....but I'm pretty sure that this has nothing to do with the fact that I have short arms? and a long armed quilter wouldn't have helped me then either? hee, hee

This reminds me of a Cosby Show episode where Theo had a home made shirt that his sister made him - not a good thing! It was a patchwork deal, mambo sleeve on one side, regular on the other...remember the show? HA!
