Summer Exchange for Marie


I received the nicest e-mail from Marie letting me know that she received the summer portion of our seasonal exchange. I was so happy when Becky sent out the names and I saw that Marie would be my recipient. I enjoy stitching Prairie Schooler designs and I knew that Marie was fond of them too, so I decided to stitch one of the Summer Samplers.

This was a really fun project to stitch and sew. I bought a new Pfaff sewing machine this summer and it's really great for these quilted projects. My daughter and I had a good time selecting the fabrics together and I relied heavily on her superb eye for color. The photos are clickable and you'll see a much sharper picture if you click on them. My daughter's boyfriend lent us his new Sony digital camera. It sure takes nice pictures!

Thanks for stopping by.

Hooraaaaay! You've moved to Blogger! And I've only just found out. Your Xanga blog never showed up on my Bloglines list, so I was never informed of any updates. Glad to have re-found you, Julianne.
Your summer exchange piece is stunning. PS designs are still the best!
