Layla, these are the close-ups I promised. The polka dots are done after assemblying the flowers, and they are done with fabric paint. Then they were glued onto the background and from there stitched down before quilting.

I thought I would have pictures of the NEW quilt, but I still have to sew down the binding and the sleeve. So, I shoud have that done in the next few days.

We received several inches of snow last night and today. Just thought I'd share this with those of you in warm California or Florida. It really is beautiful and my dogs had such a good time playing in it this morning.
So, I am just staying in today, and hope to get some quilting done this afternoon. I am just at the point that I will remove it from my design wall and start to sew everything down. I think I need a name for my new quilt. Any IDEAS!

Finally, my top is done. Now it is time to quilt.

What Next?

I finally finished the top I have been working on-- and once in a lifetime I have the whole day to design the quilt I want to start next.

WHERE IS IT? I have so many ideas, even ones that are ready to be enlarged--- What am I doing here? Duh!!! I guess you just can't force creativity. That in -between stage makes me crazy. Will let you know when I finally come up with something.

Free At Last Quilt

I went back and tried to find earlier photo, but somehow part of that blog is missing. So, thought I would put a new picture of the FREE AT LAST quilt.

Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival

I just wanted to share with everybody the fact that my FREE AT LAST quilt got accepted in the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival that is in Hampton, Virginia. This is the first time I have entered anything in this show so it should be interesting! You can view the FREE AT LAST quilt on an earlier blog. One of the very first I think.
