Happy Mothers Day to everyone. I got these beautiful strawberries in the mail from my daughter. I would rather have had her but the strawberries are good.
We decided to ride the ferry on the way to the beach on Friday. North Carolina is so fortunate to have a great ferry system and for the time being it is free. This is the ferry from Minnesott Beach to Cherry Branch. It takes about 20 minutes and it is a beautiful ride. It is a great thing to do with the kids.
We are meeting the ferry going the other way.
My aunt is always an inspiration to me in so many ways. She is the one that really inspired me to start making quilts. She introduced me to Gwen Marston and I will be forever grateful. She encouraged me (pushed me) to go to my first Gwen workshop and I was hooked. Since then we have worked with Gwen two more times.
My aunt is making a quilt for her daughter's friend who adopted a baby. I just had to post these stars she made.
And now look how great these stars look in the quilt. My aunt is into a phase of doing 9 patches with 3" squares. The stars look like they are just tossed on the quilt.
My daughter in law asked me yesterday to make quilts for a couple of her friends, one who is expecting twin boys!! I think I might try this idea.
