I want to share my last quilt
I tried to finish for Christmas, but
I was a couple of days late.
I came down with a nasty bug on Christmas,
flu I think, (even though I had a flu shot).
Even though I love sharing things,
I didn't think I should share the flu, so the quilt
has not been delivered yet.
Being in the accounting field, year end is...well you can image.
Monday was the day I scheduled inventory,
outside, 32 degrees and still sick, but I made it.
Anyway, I'm sure you did come here to listen to me whine.
So here it is....
A little history...
This is a memory quilt I made for my aunt.
The stars are made from her late husband's
There are six circles of stars, one for each of her children,
and 8 stars in each circle, one for each member of her family.
I quilted 18 friendship stars for each of her grandchildren.
There are 15 pinwheels for her great grandchildren.
The pattern is Round and Round by Thimble Blossoms.
I left the center circle off and quilted his name.
(just in case you noticed, I did fix the corner of that pinwheel)
I quilt everything freehand, including the names.
2 layers 80/20 batting.
Glide thread, linen, it's not a white white, but not beige.
Love it on a white background.
I like to try something new on every quilt, this time it was
Nice little feathered border.
I couldn't get a picture of the whole quilt,
this is as good as I could get.
Thanks for stopping by,
back to work tomorrow.
