You are never to old to quilt

Today's quilt is a Thimbleberries Quilt that I just finished for Doris.  Doris recently turned 90 and is still a very active quilter.  She belongs to Sagebrush Quilters' Guild and can be seen regularly shopping with her Granddaughter for more quilt fabric.
When I phoned her to ask if I could feature her quilt on my Blog she said "oh yes, I just read your Blog."  So not only does she quilt, she is active on the internet.  Doris has just purchased a Janome Horizon and declares that it is a beautiful machine.  She says that she has been quilting for years as well as making dolls.  A friend of mine took several doll making classes from Doris when she was still teaching, not that many years ago.
The piecing on this quilt is incredible.  Doris is my hero.  I want to be just like her when I grow up.


  1. Linda that is an amazing quilt....great detail work...I want to be able to quilt like that. Maybe next year when I break down and buy a real fancy machine I can do it.

  2. Me too please. She is a beautiful lady and what a wonderful quilt!!!!
