Willow Wood Quilting

Last month my quilting buddy, Judy, fell and broke the pinkie finger of her left hand. Since she is right handed she thought it would not slow her down too much. As it turned out she needed to have pins put in the bone (OUCH!) the following week and things went down from there. We met for coffee the Sunday before the surgery and I volunteered to help her get ready for "Voices in Cloth", the show in Oakland put on by EBHQ every other April. It is to be held April 10 and 11. The quilt pictured is an Amish style using Cherrywood Fabrics hand dyes which Judy quilted on her long arm. We started sewing the binding this morning as she has to deliver it Saturday by 4 p.m.

The center of the quilt is plain with only "X" quilting on the patches. But the outside border (pictured above) is beautiful! We got about one-third of the quilt bound. If Judy sews every spare minute it will get done before Saturday at 4!

Above is pictured a silk doll quilt in the process of being bound (by me). Judy scaled down her quilting to fit the small size of the quilt.

If you need a local long arm quilter, contact Willow Wood Quilting at 510.835.2536 or 510.381.3392 and talk to Judy who can still use her long arm in spite of her broken pinkie.
