Barbra’s Dragon Star

Happy New Year to all! Hope your year will be filled with lots of time to quilt! On a more serious note, I do wish you a happy and healthy 2013!

I have had a wonderful 2 week break from work, filled with family, food and laughter! But now I am behind on my blog so thought I would take this quiet morning to write another one….

I quilted this quilt for Barbra Thorpe just before my break. The pattern is another Judy Neimeyer, called Dragon Star. Barbra’s colour choices are wonderful. The longer I worked on it, the more I fell in love with her colours!

Once agin the large light space of this pattern was my challenge! After a little drawing, a good nights sleep and a little more drawing, this is what I came up with….

I was very honoured to quilt this quilt. Barbra is the daughter of Sharon Hanna (see previous blog), and they brought their quilts all the way from Calgary! Thank you both for choosing me to quilt for you!

Have I ever mentioned I love my Job!
