Yes, We are working, too!

It seems like we have been doing everything but working on quilts lately, but we really have been at the machines every day. Mr Wazoo has been cranking out quilts one or two a day, and I have been faithfully custom quilting one beautiful quilt at a time. Some take two days, and some take a week...but all of them are like family to me when I have finished them. I really do love my job!
On a very sad note, one of my favorite customers and quilting friend passed away yesterday after a long fight with cancer. I think she epitomized strength and dignity in the face of a devastating illness, keeping her poise and grace to the end. Her quilts will be a lasting legacy for her family. I already miss her quiet demeanor and warm smile. I am thankful I had the honor to know her and leave my mark on her wonderful quilts.
Now, I leave you with a colorful array of quilts, both from Mr Wazoo and myself. Tomorrow, I start another customer project and will leave another piece of my quilting soul on its surface.

I quilted it with my favorite panto. It's a happy quilt.

It took me four and a half days to do this quilting. It was worth it. The quilt is stunning.

Now, we're at the end of the 'quilt show'. There is a quilt on the frame and I will be busy quilting tomorrow.
