Nine years ago my neighbor Di and I worked out a barter. I taught her how to make a Lone Star quilt and she built my website. She also got me into blogging!
Well, last Fall she informed me that my website was due for an update and we worked out a new barter. I posted about this when the barter began, and you can read about it by clicking here.
The quilt top is done and I’m thrilled to have brought it to completion. This is one of the blocks the quilt is made from:
and here’s the king sized quilt top ready for Aunt Susie’s Long Arm Quilting!
Jenny didn’t want a pillow tuck, so the border doesn’t go around the top of the quilt. The pieced center just fits her king sized bed and the plain cream colored border/final pieced border drop off the quilt sides. It’s a very bright and cheerful quilt.
Any guesses how many pieces are in it?
1796!!! I think that’s a record for me. What’s the most number of pieces you’ve put in a quilt?
The other half of the barter is coming to fruition this weekend! Di has uploaded my new website and I think it is lovely! Please go to: https://www.chrisquilts.net/ to visit my homepage,
and feel free to navigate around a bit (i.e. click on whatever looks interesting) to see all that it has to offer.
Today Di is completing the uploading of the blog. I think you’re going to like the new format. It’s visually crisp and clean, and should be easy to use. But please be patient if a link doesn’t work – or something doesn’t look quite right yet – we’re still in the final stages of the upload.
Thank you Di, for all your knowledge and hard work. It’s really appreciated.
It certainly is fun to have friends with different talents to share. Have you done a barter with your quilting skills that you’d like to share? If so, please send me an email about it: firstname.lastname@example.org.
