another quilt finished...

This is Dolores' quilt. It's so soft and feminine looking with pale colors and the pretty, paisley border.  A fun quilt to work on because of the sampler block style border. I did something different in each of the border blocks.

When I was clipping threads I noticed I missed a line in the center,  I marked it with a safety pin so I know where to go back and stitch.


The paisley and green fabrics were so busy that I couldn't see where I was driving too well. I had good luck  turning my overhead lights off and casting a light across the top of the quilt. I quilted in the shadows I guess you could say...  but my husband walked through and wondered if I had lost my mind...... 
"Quilting in the dark?"






If you live in the MA area I hope you will consider attending our local quilt show. There will be over 200 quilts.  Each year we have a special exhibit and this year we have two.  We are hosting a handcrafted apron display with many going for auction. Funds are being raised for women's health. We also are sponsoring a kid's quilt display. Several members mentored a child or group and made quilts for this display.  You  can find information in the side bar and soon I will put a link for directions to the venue.

I love the new blog header! Very whimsical and bright.

You did an amazing job quilting this. I've had that "quilting on a busy fabric" issue before. I felt like I was l driving through a white out!

I never did get to attend any shows when I lived in Mass.. It was before the quilting bug bit me. I hope you have fun at the show, and please post lots of pics for us!
