Star Quilt


I finally finished this Vintage Star quilt for my niece.


I started in it August.  Then I got the bright idea to hand quilt it.


I had never hand quilted anything this large, EVER!  What was I thinking??!!


I'm really proud at how this turned out.  It did take a long time and my niece never stopped bothering me.  Asking every couple of weeks if it was done.  She will finally get it tomorrow.  I hope she is as happy with it as I am.

I'm taking an online Curves class put on by Rachel @ Stitched in Color.  I'm really excited about it because I've never sewed a curve, ever!  She also has a Handstitched class that she is offering.  I took that last summer and made some really cute things.


Needlebook
I love this needlebook.  I use it all the time.

I'm also still working on the quilt that we started.  The Modern Medallion.  Here's mine so far.

I have the sides sewed on, but no photo of that.  It isn't laying flat so I think I'm going to have to do some ripping.  That's probably why I set it aside.

Anyway, if you are interested, enrollment is still open.  Go to www.stitchedincolor.com/p/online-classes.html and sign up.  Rachel is a great teacher and her blog is one of my favorites.

Birthday Present

Look what my father-in-law made for me!  It is a spool and bobbin holder! 


 I can't wait to hang it and fill it up with all my thread! 


 What a great birthday present!

Angie's Quilt




I made this quilt for a friend of mine.  She contracted GBS and Botulism.  We thought we might loose her, but she is a strong woman.  She survived and is almost all the way back to her old self.  It took a lot of faith hope and love - and a ton of prayers!

I want to welcome all my new followers, and I want to share a secret project.  I've been working on this quilt for my niece.  She is getting married over Labor Day and asked me to make her a quilt.  She pinned a bunch of them on my quilt board on Pinterest, but when I saw this one, I knew it was "The One".  Now, this is just the top.  I still have to sandwich it and quilt it.  I hope she loves it as much as I loved making it for her.  What do you guys think?  Any suggestions on how I should quilt this?

Julie's Quilt




I made this quilt for my neighbor who gave a kidney to her Dad.  She also works at Children's in Dayton and came to see Kacey on the days she worked.  She is a great person and I'm proud to call her my friend.
