I had the honor of making a quilt for a book by one of our guild members, Bob DeCarli. Bob is the only male member in our guild and a super nice guy. He puts up with all of us women quilters and adds a lot of fun to our meetings. Always the gentleman, he is there to help carry a sewing machine or 100lbs of fabric after a shopping spree at the annual getaway.
He is a former math professor and engineer who became interested in quilting when his wife asked him to help her make a quilt.
This was the quilt I made. It is named after his granddaughter, Charlotte. It is quilted by Charlotte's mom, Robin.
You may remember the other quilt I made for his first book Hill and Valley Log Cabins. Yes did I say he is an engineer???? He LOVES small pieces. You know the kind that are 1/4" x 1/4"!
Congratulations Bob on your newest book!
It's always exciting to see your name in print.
Today I sent out my 100 nine patches to Barb and can't wait to get my selection back in October. The wheels are turning as to what I will be doing with them. Have you made a quilt with nine patches that you love? I could be swayed!
