A Quilt For Handsome...

Stunning long-arm work by Pat Alderman
After my hair appointment yesterday (I have to look good for the holidays,
right?), Handsome took me to Parrish to pick up his finished quilt from 
Pat Alderman. (I'm not cleared to drive myself yet.) He hasn't see it, as it's
his Christmas gift this year, but I just know he's going to be completely
thrilled when he unwraps it on Christmas Day. I know I'm over the moon!
Perfect quilting for a masculine design
Pat accented the Princeton plates without making them too girly. I love how
 every decision she made creates movement without being over the top. She
used a washable wool batting, so the quilt has the most wonderful drape, too!
I'm loving the final result!
I'll be binding the quilt in just a few days and then it will be ready to
place beneath our Christmas tree. Thank you, Pat, for another splendid
quilting finish. I'll be entering this one in our quilt show in February, too.

I think it's nearly time to sit back and relax! Just a few more packages
to ship and then I can enjoy the entire holiday with loved ones.
There really isn't anything better, is there?

I am always amazed at how the actual quilting stitches truly make fabric come alive. This is beyond a handsome manly quilt for your Handsome. Merry Christmas! Donna Dear I am continuing my prayers and healing energy for your complete recovery. To a healthy New Year...

This quilt is really special. As others have already said, it is amazing just what a difference the quilting makes to a finished top. I do hope you are soon completely recovered ready for a fit and healthy 2014. I already know it will be yet another truly creative year and look forward to seeing what you make.
