It’s funny how we get to know people through blogging and via email. Some people will introduce themselves to me by name and state when we meet as in “Suzie from Poughkeepsie” But often times, if we have corresponded, or they have commented frequently, I’ll recognize them much easier by the first part of their email address!
Such is the case with the quilter who’s login on Blogger is simply “Knitnoid” ---there was no first name/last name attached to her email, but that’s okay – I’d recognize her better as simply “Knitnoid” anyhow!
She sent along some beautiful photos of an Ocean Waves quilt she just finished, and I wanted to share it along with you:
Last weekend I gave my niece her high school graduation present -- this Ocean Waves quilt I made using your instructions and of course bonus HSTs!
My niece told me her favorite color was "turquoise". My pictures don't show the fabric in true colors. I used a "hot pink" backing and rented time on a long arm to quilt it -- flowers all over the place, although the pictures don't show it too well.
I love the fact that it has scraps of fabric of all sorts of things in it. It was definitely a trip down memory lane. I started it last October and finished it a month before graduation -- a first for me to have a quilt finished BEFORE the gift giving occasion.
Thanks for all that you do for quilters world wide. I'm looking forward to your next book.
Full quilt! Love that turquoise!
Close up of quilt detail! Just beautiful!
Image of the backing fabric…love the hot pink..and I can see the camera shadow! LOL! We do what we have to do to get the job done, right?
Here’s the matching pillow case – what a great graduation gift for a special neice!
Thanks for sharing the quilt with me Knitnoid, now if I only knew your REAL name!
**Addition** Knitnoid has emailed me back, and I know know she is Pam A in KC, MO! She blogs HERE!
