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......

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.
