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!
