That poor 30's quilt that has been in the making for 3 years is now "totally" finished---
I can not tell you how happy I am with this finish!!!!
when I was going to our local quilt shop --Quilt club meetings--
our leader showed us how to make this block--I came home and away I went--
and I ended up with a whole quilt top to show the next month!!!
the quilt is about 56 x 56 inches now--
it was larger--it originally had another outer border of 6 inches on each side--
Here it is--
I used to run an "ionizer" in the apartment to clean the air--
but it also liked to bleach out the "cheaper" cuts of fabric--
that is why now I only buy the 'good quilt shop fabric"!!!
this border was a bright yellow--
Probably the same yellow that I ended up using as the binding--
but I felt is was safe now to use as I only run regular air cleaning machines--
so here is one corner--each row of the flying geese borders took 5 hours to hand quilt--so I have alot of hand quilting hours in this "baby"-
---but miss gracie just loves this quilt---sooooo!!!!
Oh and Sofie seems to like it tooo!!!
and here is where the little hexagon quilt has found a home for now--
see it on the ladder back of the chair!!!
So I now only have one more project to finish for this month and three days to do it--
hummmm--only time will tell!!!
And next month I am planning on doing something alittle different--at least part of the time--and there is a celebration to look forward to in Feb--so hang on to your "pants" we are in for a wild ride in February!!
Take care and have a great week end--
