Quilting with Ralph...

We are all trying to finish up our projects

before we break for the summer...

Betty is working on a raw edge heart quilt

Linda is piecing her pancake quilt

Kathi is machine quilting her star quilt

Lani is nearly done with her pancake quilt

Kathi's star blocks were won at a quilt retreat in 2007

Instead of making a fabric wrapped 

basket, I am making a rug!

Fabric strips wrapped around 

3/16 cotton clothesline rope

The rug finished at 39 inches diameter

Ralph is very interested in 

free motion quilting...

He likes to get up close and personal 

with the sewing machine

Quilting tires him out and 

he needs to take a nap

When he get sleepy he doesn't have far to

 go to cuddle up with a quilt

Ralph is the official Quilt Palace Kitty

He loves to quilt on Mondays!
