New nephew/ and wife

My brother Joey Gavilan Jarvis was born Feb 1954 and was killed in 1973.
He had a son he named Joey Ryan in 1969 or 70. I got a message from Joey Ryan's wife, Amy, on facebook yesterday. Whoo Hoo!!! I am a very happy person to finally know about him. He favors his daddy so much. I can't wait to get to know them better. Family is a very important part of who I am.
Here is a picture of the handsome couple.

I may be wrong, but that small picture on the way may be my brother Joey. He was a handsome little dickens too.

I hope everyone has a great week.

Summer Star Sampler done

I love this little quilt. It's a pattern from the apqs site. The focal fabric was a set of kitchen curtains I got from the thrift shop. I fell in love with the fabric but didn't need any more curtains so I took them apart and put the fabric away till I found something I could use it on. This pattern was perfect for it.

Need ideas for a Hole in the Barn Door

I belong to a couple longarm quilt groups and I very rarely have to ask for help but when I do it's because I truly can't come up with any good ideas.
I asked for help on this one, the customer wants high end custom and my mind is a total blank. If anyone that reads my blog has any ideas, I would appreciate them.

It would be nice if once in a while I
got an idea from someone. Which is
rather rare.
