Baptist fans

What I haven't posted anything since Oct 4! Oh boy, that's because I was so busy working on this beauty. I was really excited when Janice sent me a picture of her quilt and wanted Baptist Fans. I want a quilt so badly with Baptist Fans. You know I love quilting things to death, but my very most favorite quilting pattern is the Baptist Fan. I've done the large rainbow type baptist fans on two other quilts but this is the first that I've done the 5 arch traditional fan. And just look at this gorgeous, quilt I had the pleasure of quilting. Janice you made such a spectacular sampler quilt. I wish I could have gotten out in the natural light for pictures, but it just couldn't happen today. Details on the quilt - Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting, Premo-Soft 50 wt Khaki thread on top, with magna glide in the bobbin. It was a time consuming as each arc was a start and stop. Each row of arcs was a roll of the frame, but I do like end results. Great job Janice.















Oh and I have little more exciting news.  This month my husband and I celebrated 25 years of marriage.  The girls came home for the weekend.  Daughter number two is pregnant and when she came home she had a surprise.  She said the ultra sound revealed something.  We were so excited to find out if this baby was going to be a boy or would this baby be the first grand daughter.....Well, we still don't know but what we do know is that there are TWO!!!!  She's having twins!!!  Oh my goodness, my heart is filled with such joy.  Earlier in the year she had a miscarriage and was devastated.  And look at her now, two!!  My heart is going to burst I tell you!

  4. Congratulations for your daughter and all of you. I don't care if you stand on your head or become the B''ch of your daughter, make sure she gets a specialist in multiples.....I have twin,9 and triplet,7 grandkids, from my youngest daughter, it almost took life. Multiples are risky for both babies and mom, so make sure she has an OB familiar with this. And sorry for the unsolicited advise.
