Blokenlopee and Great is Thy Faithfulness

This poor lady looks like a stern teacher giving a boring lecture. I found her at this Fairy Quilt Godmother site. She was a lot of fun to make. I'm hoping to get her quilted soon.

Here is a picture that Mother painted for Paul & me and gave it to us as a wedding gift.

I tweaked it on the computer and ...

... and Emily and I made it into a small quilt for Mother.

For Paul's mom, I took a picture of a quilt that she was hand quilting. She had embroidered the blocks many years ago when she worked at the hospital on night shift.

Again, I tweaked the picture ...

... and made this small quilt for her.

Hi, came across your blog. I love your quilts. They are just beautiful. My mother was a Mennonite growing up. (We are from Knoxville.) I am wondering if you knew a Mennonite lady named Ruth Byer. She was from PA, and moved to Knoxville. She did awesome quilts like these. She passed away several years ago. I am just curious about the Mennonite's and my hertiage. Thanks, Lisa Lynch
