Alphabet Quilt Fairy Godmothers

These are my quilt's Fairy Godmothers. On the left is Julie, the QuiltDivaJulie of the Flying Monkeys fame. Julie is holding Angel, who performed the Quality Assurance inspection of the magnificent quilting done by Chris (on the right) who, along with her trusty longarm machine, Iris, quilted my sampler quilt. Julie's husband Larry, a fabulous artist in wood, helped take photos.

You can see more of Chris' work here, at her Picasa album, and in a few days, you'll be able to see more pictures of Chris' quilting on the Alphabet Sampler. (I am still waiting for it to fly back home to me!)

It was Julie who recommended Chris to quilt my quilt. I am so happy she did. When I first talked to Chris on the telephone, I knew she was the one to quilt my quilt when she said, "The quilt will tell me how it wants to be quilted."

I think all my future quilts will take a side trip to Tennessee...

Stay tuned.

I've never been called a fairy godmother before ~ how much fun is that! It was SUCH a treat to be able to see your fabulous quilt in person... and to be part of this joyful process!

Hey, I like the 'fairy godmother' title. I have been a 'wicked stepmother' for many years.(ha!ha!)
All kidding aside, it has been such a rewarding experience just hearing all the excitement in your voice and in your posts! That is what it is all about! Thanks again!!!
