I have it

I have to thank one of my quilting friends from my quilting group that asked if Noah could be in one of Jan's older patterns, yes, some quilters are able to keep track of these things, then I realized I had the book Noah and there is the quilt with lots of other projects with a Noah theme, from Gerry Kimmel, Linda Brannock and Jan from 1991, a Red Wagon book. Something old, becomes new again.

I saw my ortho doc last week and am at full weight bearing, no work for another month, don't think they will hold my job much longer, I keep saying that, and they keep calling to see when I can come back, and then in two months, I will have xrays again, and if not totally healed, he may have to take a peek inside. Inside my hip, I think not.

And a pic of a prim quilt I designed and hand appliquéd many years ago using those typical prim appliqué designs from Patek, using my stash of vintage Brannock and Patek fabrics.

  2. I think Kelly gave me her copy, and still plan on making some things from it. I do love her books and how you can mix and match the appliques to make our own pieces.

  3. Those old books are great finds. I'm hoping that your healing can continue and that they are able to hold your job as long as needed.

  4. I made the Noah quilt a while back. You can see mine on my blog. Are you planning to make one? It is a long quilt compared to width.

    Your "Jan" quilt is wonderful, wonderful. I am happy that you have shared a picture with us.

  5. Hello Nancy. I came across your blog this weekend in a search for the pattern for the Brannock & Patek Collector Series. I read through a year of your posts and was saddened to learn of your accident and loss. What a trauma you have been through. I love the style of your quilt projects. I'm looking forward to seeing more! I hope your healing progresses more rapidly and your job will continue to wait for you.

  7. Your quilt is lovely. I especially like the border of simple strips but Oh! so appealing.
