My friend, Jeremy, sent me these pictures today.
The first quilt was made in Celebration, Florida. It is a nine-patch variation.
I first met Jeremy while living there. In addition to being one of my favorite people, he is a very good friend of my son, Nick.
The small light bordered quilt and the bottom quilt are triple Irish Chains. Irish Chains are my "go to" quilts. I love making them and often find myself making one simply because I enjoy the process.
I promised several years ago to make Jeremy an art quilt and will post a picture when finished (or when started)!
Thank you for the pictures Jeremy. I hope you are always kept warm by your quilts and the bonds of friendship!!
