Show & Tell -- Jackie Dollen 3/25/11

Jackie Dollen, Persia, stopped in to show us her completed Presidents' Day mystery quilt.  This is Jackie's first pieced quilt, and she should be very proud!  She has made scads of t-shirt quilts in the past, and she is a natural for pieced quiltmaking.  It was fun having her in our workshop.  Jackie made the quilt from her stash.  All three fabrics can be found in previous t-shirt quilts made for children and grandchildren.  When Jackie showed her Stars & Stripes to one of her grandsons, he asked who would receive the basketball-themed quilt.  Jackie flipped the quilt top over to show him all the work that she had done to catch points and match seams.  The grandson responsed, "Maybe you should keep this one for yourself, Grandma."  What a smart little boy!
