Quilts By Friends, July 2017

Linda Satkowski is working on Katja Marek’s quilt-let project, from Marek’s web site and from the book THE NEW HEXAGON MILLIFIORE QUILT ALONG.”  She is using this gorgeous, coral color for her background.  I love it and asked her to roughly lay out her mostly finished blocks so we could see them at a recent Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild monthly sew-along meeting–Camden, Maine.

AND, friend Elizabeth (Betsy) Maislen, who is now RETIRED, is working on this quilt–which knocked my socks off.  Go Betsy!!

I will see Betsy soon as she will be in and out of my house (as will husband Bill) while she is on the windjammer J&E Riggin, out of Rockland, Maine.  Betsy volunteers and helps Annie Mahle cook.  The two together produce some awesome meals–all fresh, local produce, seafood, and meats.  This year, Betsy will be volunteering for roughly six weeks in September and October.

  2. Thanks for such high praise Louisa! This quilt is for a friend’s wedding gift. I would love to get it finished before I come to Maine. Thinking of finding someone to machine quilt it for me. Haven’t decided if I will do that or just tie it, which I can do myself. I need only a few hours to finish the borders, it’s very close!

    • My own take is that there is way too much work in this quilt to tie it. You could also just grid quilt it yourself, but that is harder to manage unless your domestic has a big throat. It is a glorious quilt!
