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.
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.
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?
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.
