Must not let a month go by without posting,
just been trying to get quilt tops made,
and those tops quilted.
All of the weddings are over, but
Christmas is approaching fast.
 
I was making a quilt using fabric several friends
and I picked up while we were on a retreat.
We called it our community fabric and we were
all going to make a quilt project.
I had a pattern that I had been wanting to make.
I can't remember right now the number of HST I had to make,
hundreds and hundreds, but it might as well said a million.
 
I opted to make a wall hanging with the ones I had
already squared up.
 
I don't have a picture with the binding on,
so these will have to do...
 
Before
 
after
 
I forgot (again) to take a before picture, but some are during the quilting process.
All quilting is freehand and ruler work.  I used a straight ruler for the compass
and Quilted Pineapple's BFF ruler on the geese.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The center was very hard for me, but I think I got it.
 
 
 
Okay, enough teasing, here is the whole thing.
 
 
I promise it has binding now and ready to hang on my family room wall.
 
So many more to finish....
 
I think I need a larger design wall or less projects...
 
 
I'll have to buy another design wall.
Here is sneak peek, Chasity.
 
Thanks for coming back, I hope to do better with my postings.
So much stuff to do not enough time.

  6. Looks fantastic! I am once again inspired by your quilting. And glad to hear that I am not the only one who changes a plan when confronted by too much piecing.

  7. Gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. I love it when a simple piecing design is turned into something incredibly spectacular. Well done.
