Karen has been sewing!!!


Karen has been busy making quilts for 3 of her friends that have been in the hospital the past few months!  She went crazy designing new patterned quilts as she went.  Her first one she made was for Sue… her neighbor and friend.  Sue is fighting esophagus cancer.  Karen made her a quilt with lots of chenille and airplanes (since they live on a runway for airplanes) their husbands are both pilots… AND of course she added the “Survivors” panel from our Say it with Words

Next quilt she made for her bestest friend’s (next to her husband, that is…)husband, Mark.  We all just this past month found out that Mark has lung cancer… It is a hard and long road to recovery… but he needed to have a quilt and a pillow that was for him!!! So… Karen made him a “Survivors” panel from our Say it with Words… but used the layer cake precuts from Timber Trail Flannel by Holly Taylor … of course by Moda.  Mark and Dianne live in a woodsy area out in the country and this line was PERFECT FOR THEM.

She combined a few older flannels to complete his quilt and then made Dianne a “Hers” quilt to compliment his… she used similar fabrics with the extras from that layer cake… added a few others and used “Friends Indeed” panel from our Say it with Words… It turned out great!  Still need to make her a pillow to complete the set… but this is how they look…  It’s a card in a quilt!!!  F-O-R-E-V-E-R! 

Check out our flannels and precuts!  Lots of new ones!!!
