Sally's Legacy


Last night at craft night Sally was able to show off her completed top also. I thought I used a lot of pieces but this one has 3060 triangles! The pattern is Lady of the Lake and is all in batiks. It is for her son and daughter-in-law's new king size bed (when they get it). She has been working on it steady for several months. You would be amazed at how beautiful her points are in this one! She ended up pressing all the seams open to aid in putting all the triangles together and it is amazing! It was really nice with just the blocks and sashing but once the outer border was attached it was stunning!

Sally is our hostess for craft night each week. This picture of her king size quilt should give you some idea of the size of her craft room! A great place to gather each week for quilting, scrapbooking, card-making, chatting, and, most important of all, laughing!
