Quilting with Candid Carrie

Here's a Friday Foto of Big Bear and one of Aunt Julie's latest creations. But before I explain, I want to remind you about The Great New Pop'rs St. Patty's Day Giveaway, featuring Pop'rs Prizes AND a $100 Target Gift Card! For more info on that, please Click Here.

Aunt Julie got in the mood to make another quilt a while back.

"It is the same pattern as College Boy's," Aunt Julie explains. "Called Texas Hold 'Em. My boys went through a poker phase, and I made the first one then. They are all the same pattern, with subtle differences. All three share the same plaids, with different borders and backgrounds.
Still need to make one more for Soccer Boy. And I have another one almost done and ready to photograph. All it needs is the binding!"


Thanks to Candid Carrie for hosting her Friday Foto Finish Fiesta. Our Pop'rs Pal Jammin' will be back tomorrow. And don't forget my giveaway!

It's beautiful. Hand made quilts make me think of my great grandmother, Big Mom, who probably made thousands of them in her lifetime.

That is super gorgeous! That is a lot of work, and Aunt Julie obviously has the knack for perfect piecing. Now we need a closeup of the quilting, which I suspect is equally meticulous and stunning!

She is so talented! I love seeing these, and I'm always so impressed by how well they turn out. Her kids must be thrilled to get such a neat memento of their mom. :)

Such a gorgeous quilt!
May luck be our companion
May friends stand by our side
May history remind us all
Of Ireland's faith and pride.
May God bless us with happiness
May love and faith abide.
