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:
This quilt is big! The top started at 115″ square. I think it’s around 113″ after quilting. And while we’re in my bedroom, this would be a good time to slip in one of my favorite things, that makes me happy. My king size pine log canopy bed. I saw it on a trip to Nebraska and fell in love with it. DH ordered it after we got home, and surpised me with it for my birthday that year. I had gone to my parent’s for a 2 day visit, and when I came home, he had it all put together. I love it! And him, too:-)!
I 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….
