Finished Mom’s Quilt and Gayle’s Yummy Fabric

I finished the quilting on Mom’s quilt yesterday.  I cannot get a good pic of the whole quilt, without taking it outside, and it’s been too windy.  So, after I get it bound and delivered to Mom’s, I will probably get some better pics on her bed.  I am really pleased with how it turned out, if I say so myself.  I’m not used to feeling that way:-).  The only part I’m not sure I really like is the quilting on the outside border, but I was trying to kinda of match the flowing viney pattern in the fabric. Border and cornerstone:

000_5059.jpgI got a wonderful treat in today’s mail!  Gayle sent me some of her gorgeous hand dyed fabric as my prize for winning her contest on her blog.  It is so yummy!  I love it!  Thank you, Gayle!  I may have to take up this fabric dyeing…as if I have time for another project….

  1. Hey! You are most welcome! Glad everything arrived safely. Thanks for sharing the other things you loaned me too.

    What a pretty quilt. And bed too.

    And about Oprah……. why dont you email her and tell her she needs to buy it 🙂 Actually…… I think Gayle King would be more likely to buy it. But what do I know?



  2. Oh, my! That is a biiigg quilt!
    You did a wonderful job, Randi. Your mother must be delighted to have a talented and thoughtful daughter like you. Your cc looks perfect…. really a nice looking quilt.
    I do like that bed. What a great husband to surprise you with it. And is that a bear in that photograph above the bed? : )


  3. Thank you all for the nice comments! Yes, Carla…those are 2 bears in the little print. Sleeping on a tree branch, and in the little heart on carved into the tree, are mine & DH’s names. My bears will be another post of favorite things…


  4. Now Randi, why don’t you tell everyone that you have a new machine and it appears that you are both enjoying one another! Great Job, I am sure your Mom will love it……
