I had the opportunity to make another memory quilt to honor a friend’s retirement. Our good friend and choir director retired after many years of service this past September. I found some fun photos of her ministry at our church and printed them on fabric for the blocks. I embroidered the center block and the quilt label. I found some interesting music fabric. Her favorite color is yellow, but gold was as close as I got. I digitized our church logo for the center square. I hope she will enjoy it and remember us fondly in her retirement.
Close up of one of the blocks when we sang at our church’s talent show a few years back. Andrews Sisters watch out….”Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” has never been sung like this!
I have a quilt loaded on my Bernina Quilt Frame. Tomorrow the 830 will make the journey down the stairs and get loaded up. I hope all goes well. The machine has been cleaned by me and oiled. I’m hoping for the best. I do need to purchase some thread for the back of the quilt. Still trying to find that perfect thread that works well with the 830 and the quilt frame. Hope all goes well. I will try and keep you posted as to how things go.
Tomorrow I plan on posting my last experience from this past fall with the quilt frame which was not such a good experience. Learned a lot and realized my 830 really needed to be serviced before trying again.
Until next time, happy sewing & quilting,
