QUILT INFO

I used an Electric Quilt applique design and modified it slightly to make this basket block.

LORI'S JUBILEE CELEBRATION

Join me in wishing Lori of Humble Quilts a very happy 50th birthday today.  She is running in a half marathon today (I don't know the proper term for the event).  Not something I could have done at age fifty.

I share with you the wall hanging I made for her Jubilee Celebration.
The pattern I used is called "Red and White Favorites" by Linda Sawrey.  It is available through Temecula Quilt Company.  I made some changes to the applique by adding in the shape of a woman, Lori's initials, the "50" for her fiftieth birthday, and a sewing machine.  Lori likes funky so I know she won't mind the chopped off wherever they land zig-zags for the border.  I enjoyed making this red and white quilt for a special friend.

Happy, happy birthday, Lori!
Karen
