Woohoo...... I received my quilt back from Jan the other day after she'd worked her magic on it.... and I love it! It's perfect for the recipient. Just got to do the binding then can post some photos.
I'm amazed at how Jan knows just what to do on the quilts she does for people. With just a few words about the recipient, Jan instinctively is able to translate a design that is perfect, and beautiful. I think Jan studies the quilt top before deciding on a theme then when she is sure, the magic happens. I have now renamed her - Jan - The Quilt Whisperer.....
While I was in the flow, I brought out another UFO and sorted that and it has now gone off to Jan today. It is a quilt top that has been in my Ottoman for a few years waiting for a border so I got to it and I'm so pleased with how it looks. Can't wait to see Jan's magic quilted into it...exciting...
Spring weather is on the way (albeit in 'fits and starts') but after several weeks of decluttering, I'm in the mood now to get some more of my UFO's out and with Jan's help, make them into loved quilts so watch this space for photos....
Besides some quilt tops, I also have 3 lots of quilt blocks to put together - My Dad's Poppy Memory quilt, my Birthday Japanese Dolls quilt, and my Underground Railroad quilt blocks. I have a specific plan in mind for the Underground Railroad quilt but not sure how to implement it so need to put my thinking cap on - or ask quilty friends for advice on how to accomplish this.
Whatever I decide, I will be use QAYG method for these as that will be more manageable for me.
Hope you are feeling better by the day....

I’m so excited….I sent one of my UFO’s to Jan and she has already worked her magic on it. I’ll be getting it back after the weekend and will post a photo or several soon. I know I’m repeating myself about the skills Jan has in FMQing but I know my quilts are in the best hands when she has worked on them so I’ll be posting another quilt to Jan a.s.a.p. before she builds up another queue of customers’ quilts.
Due to a health difficulty, I can’t do my own quilting so I’m thankful for Jan and her talent. Anyone who hasn’t seen Jan’s amazing work can see it on her website – http://jansmusingagain.wordpress.com/
I’ve been busy with a new venture too but more on that later as I’m still in the planning stage.
Hope you are well, or feeling much better than of late!
Take care and stay warm.
