I never realized how quickly bloggers can become online friends, and become friends in reality!!
Do you know how I know that we are friends? He cut up my scraps... yep!! That seals it right there.
AND!! He was at Houston the two times that I was there - and said hi! IN PUBLIC!!! oh ya....
Oh!!! And!!! he also sewed labels on a bajillion QOV's!!!
(PS - he passed the horse test - they accosted him - he laughed. So he is good in their book)
When he emailed and asked if I would like to collaborate on a Quilt with him - I seriously hesitated! Why? - well have you seen his quilt Radar? It is winning all sorts of stuff - and he is like this "real" quilter, and knows all these important people - and well.... I quilt in the basement......
So I panicked..... and then I said - Sure..... because I mean really - he lives far away - he can't beat me up if he doesn't like it. And I live in the middle of my place - it's not like I couldn't see him coming and have time to hide ..... right????
So he bravely sent his Quilt to me ( ps - it will be a Quilt of Valor when he is done with his *speaking tour* - see I told you he was imporant)
Here is the whole quilt... Kevin is posting all the Quilt info on His blog - So don't forget to check his post out: http://kevinthequilter.blogspot.com/2015/04/collaborating-with-alycia-quilts.html
I did these Star Motifs down the center. I thought they would be the focal point of the quilting, and since it is a QOV - I wanted it to be able to be awarded to either a female or male.
I hope that you will go over to Kevin's blog and read all about his Quilt as well. I am somewhat of an early bird ( chores start at 5:30am) so his may not quite be posted yet..... Keep checking back lol
