Calendar Girls is a Finish !

For those new to my blog Doreen of Aunt Reen's Place blog did all of the Redwork  by hand for both of our quilts and designed unique sashing for each month  to make.  This quilt has many fond memories of us making our quilts together . I started this quilt in 2012 with Doreen .
The made this quilt with  " Rouenneries Deux "French General Fabric .

  1. I don't remember if I asked before. Are the redwork blocks by hand or machine? How for Doreen to have done them for you. Your quilt is surely a memory of your friendship and a year round quilt to display.

  2. Another Masterpiece using your French Generals! Oui! Oui!

  3. Wow, very impressive. Doreen is a good friend!

  4. That is just a wonderful quilt. I love the embroideries, were they a pattern or did your friend design them herself.

  5. Your quilt turned out Gorgeous!
    Thanks for all those wonderful memories we share!

  6. Thanks for sharing the close ups. I loved seeing this quilt in more detail. Your quilter did an amazing job!

  7. Oh - I'm just in awe, Sue! I love the border on September - actually, all of them! What a wonderful and treasured quilt to have made with a good friend!
