Finally got this one quilted, the binding made and attached to the front (all 440″ of it), ready to be hand stitched to the back. I’m posting a ridiculous amount of pictures, but it felt so good to get this off the machine. I’m not thrilled with my feather work, but I’m a bit rusty from lack of practice. It will take some time to get all my mojo back. The circles and stars were all done with my Circle Lord basic unit and Aztec template. I know I have said this before, but I love my Circle Lord stuff! The color is a bit washed out in most of the pics, too. Guess it’s because the way the light was shining in, but the tans and creams are not nearly that pale, and the reds and greens are more vibrant. The swirly filler quilting in the tan spaces was my attempt at mimicking the pattern of the border fabric, which is also used in the blocks. I think you can see it close up in one or two of the photos. Anyhoo….here it is.

I’m a simple woman…at least that what my DH (Dear Husband) used to say about me…I was a wife, I am now a widow, mother, step-mother & step-grandmother, quilter, and have a full time job in criminal justice. I lost my DH on May 22nd, 2011. I live in a small town in Texas. I love piecing quilts, I love quilting quilts. I have a serious addiction to fabric. I’ve been quilting since 1998, and purchased my first longarm, a Gammill Premier, in 2004. I upgraded to an A-1 Elite, named Corky, in March, 2007. I am in the process of rebuilding my life after losing my spouse.
