Quilting Makes the Quilt!


 
Here is the flat out GORGEOUS Feathered Star. OMG - quilted by Margaret Gunn at Mainely Quilts of Love. She did an amazing job quilting it, turned it around really quickly, and she was priced reasonably for custom quilting. It turned out so much better than I expected. What a talent! 
 
The piece is called, "Autumn at Lost Mountain," and was inspired by the changing colors of the Maple Trees at Lost Mountain last Fall (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!).
 
I have a class with Judy Niemeyer next week at Quilting by the Bay in Florida, and I cannot wait to show the finished quilt to her. I really should block it tomorrow or Friday so I could work on the binding in car on the way down, but that would be too much like right. Besides, I don't want to take a chance on it not being dry and not being able to take it. You will recall that I started this when I went to Judy's retreat in Montana last September, and I know she will be pleased to see the finished result. And you know you're going to see a picture of me and Judy with this quilt when I get back. Just sayin'. 
According to this BMI chart, I am too short.

It's beautiful! It is time for you to kick it up a notch and start designing your own patterns, you've conquered all there is out there.

ROFLOL! I have HARDLY conquered all there is out there! Still have a long way to go. What I really need to work on is doing my own quilting...then I will be a quilter, instead of a topper! Good to hear from you! Hugs!
