Well finally finished something.
Like all marriages this quilt too is not perfect but I am happy with how it turned out overall with all my gimpy and half wit arms. Yeah I did the LA quilting too. Had to take many breaks but got it done in one day
just a panto
The other quilt is all fused bocks, sashing and borders. I too quilted it on LA and had fun just doing what ever popped in my head. This was a 14 day challenge and I enjoyed just quilting with no real plan. I pulled fabric from a FQ bundle I had won from QIAD a long time ago
All the fabrics were from my stash and I just ran with it
Thanks for looking. I named my one quilt "Healing Stars" because it was truly a healing process through my accident. I still have days that something will tear me up from a thought of the accident. I still cannot stand the sound of the 4 wheeler racing up. But I am healing and daily see the improvements. Still only have about 40% use of left arm right now. Its a challenge but I will overcome. I still cannot thank all of you for the cards and love you have given me

Gimpy and Half wit did a wonderful job on them both. I really like the red, black and white one, a different look of a double wedding ring!

Very nice Izzy especially with "a gimpy arm". The first one looks aniquey. Is that a word?
Have a great day! Valerie

IZZY - it amazes me that you were able to do these quilts at all, let alone do such a beautiful job. Your healing stars is reminiscent of the X-rays of your ribs that you shared with us. But the love you are feeling from so many quarters - represented by the hearts - is helping you overcome! I'm not surprised you have a touch of PTSD after your accident. It's not just for soldiers, you know. God bless!
