In Memory of…

This quilt resides at the Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. It is one of the largest museums of it’s kind in the country.  I take classes because I learn and expand my horizions. From Katie Pasquini Masopust … I learned to build my quilt in sections. That meant I quilted each section separately and then put it together. It was really great to work in small sections. It also made each section perfectly straight when I finished. Putting it together was another story …especially when I forgot a section. That section was the part to the left of the can of gas. The next issue was the border. From Caryl Bryer Fallert Gentry I learned about borders. I tea dyed some Benartex fabric because it was too bright and I made the border. However, unlike Caryl the border was after the quilt was put together and quilted. This quilt is 5′ x 6′. I quilted it on my BERNINA 1530 over 20 years ago.

  1. Pauline–I am interested in a Bernina #770. Would like to talk to you about this machine at the meeting Wednesday morning. I may purchase an embroidery machine sometime afterwards, possibly a Baby Lock Spirit. Would like your opinions.
