A MENNONITE QUILT!

This lovely Mennonite quilt was bought by my friend Helen. Her husband spotted the quilt in a little shop outside of London Ontario.


.
Helen said her husband had to convince her to buy it! Imagine that!

.
It's hand appliqued, and of course all the hand quilting has different patterns around the appliques.

If you click on the photo the hand quilting and applique is fabulous!

I have done a bit of sewing but the Olympics which we get all day long are just rivoting and yesterday for the opening day of Curling, you would have thought it was the gold medal round as Canada beat Norway 5-4. The Norweigans have clown pants...honestly we were joking about the elephants must be just outside the arena!


.
Today is bridge day, so not much sewing is happening . I am so feeling that we are approaching spring! I don't know why that is, maybe it's all the vitamin d I've been taking. I feel energized.
