So I have been designing a quilt

for a friends 60th birthday...she loves to ice skate...and this is the sketch so far...just a rough sketch of the design ...it will be a queen sized quilt...for the wall or for the bed...


we celebrate our bee members memorable birthdays with a quilt...Betsy is a sweety...and her birthday is NOV 23 so this one will be done in a hurry...and applique is fast...this will all be fused and buttonholed stitched...THe blocks will be scrappy backgrounds in blues ..as well as the center medallion background...

She loves to ice skate and works at the local rink giving parties for the kids...we will probably put our autographs on the stars...but possibly on the skates too...I HOPE it looks like the skates are twirling around...what do you think?
