Rest in peace dear brother.

My brother died yesterday 5-30-15 after a long and brave battle.
He leaves behind his wife, two children and one special granddaughter, and his parents in law, many nephews and nieces, great nephews and nieces
along with his siblings, sisters and brother in law, and friends.
He was a fine man, served in Vietnam, retired from the Air Force and retired from his second career.
You will be missed by so many, may God welcome you with open arms.

Bonnie's mystery top pieced

Well I got the top pieced now I have to make the backing and get it quilted.
Thanks for the mystery quilt Bonnie, Happy Sewing, Kim

This quilt was amazing, I'm sorry if you didn't get to see it because the workmanship with
the quilting was just mesmerizing, I know I stood and studied it for quite a while.  Bethanne knows what she is doing with a longarm machine!  You can see the whole quilt and other winners here, but look at these close ups!!

Best longarm quilting on a wall quilt.

I think Bethanne has many hours of practice and TONS of talent!

look how she worked the quilting design right into the flying geese borders.

 Winning Quilts!

I LOVED this quilt and I got to tell the quilt maker that it really touched me in a special way.  I wish I would have taken her picture with her quilt.
