mofits within the quilt. The quilt pattern came from the book "Favorite Quilts From Anka's Treasures" author- Heather Mulder Peterson. I opt for a more formal applique then what is showing in the book. Sketch and cut my own flowers for the center, cut leaves from the green batik backing and raw appliqued in the white areas . I will use this as a wall hanging and table cloth at Thanksgiving. (covered with clear plastic to catch the spills)

www.amqretreat.com.au/ Check out her slide show. She started quilting 2006 unbeliveable quilting . Hoping she will teach over here next year, I'll have a front row seat or volunteer to be her assistant. She has a sense of humor but I think a little shy....Willllll, that's going to change when she meets us here in the states. (these are just samples of Ray's work - selftaught too!)

Dorcheter, Iowa and look what I found for my patio. Just 3 coats of paint and it looks new again. Will make new seat covers in a sea green stripe. Couldn't resist the table cloth too!! It would make into a beautiful whole cloth, I just can not resist a margin!!!!! This place makes me miss my business that I sold a few years back ....but then reality sets in, then I realize that I have more quilting time, why would I want the stress of working again when I have all this freedom.
