Whew...I started this quilt in 1998...didn't have any clue what I was doing...knew nothing about binding, so I made a ruffle...BEFORE the quilt appliques were even thought of!!
I ran into some problems doing the embroidery because it was already quilted...but managed anyway.
Good to finally be able to declare it OFFICIALLY FINISHED!

The next goal that I finished are the Heart Strings Blocks.  They were easy to make.  The only problem I had was that alot of the strings were smaller than 1 inch so I couldn't make as many as I anticipated...there are around 30 here.

Oh, I have the Christmas table runner all ready and waiting to be quilted.

A slight change in quilting my Falling Stars quilt...after pin basting and then machine basting...I took it to my LQS and am having it quilted by them....but first I had to REMOVE all those machine basted stitches...that's one way to FINISH a

I've added a couple of things to my goal list...

This is a peek at something I am working on.  I have been wanting to open an Etsy store for some time now...hope it will happen soon.  Anyway, I was thinking of making some 'storybook' character quilts with the machine embroidered finger puppets or dolls to go with them to offer in Etsy.

This particular one is Cinderella...I'm auditioning some fabric for the Castle and tried out a design for the carriage...which I'm not liking because the gold metallic fabric gets perforated...the little finger puppets are cute.

And how do you like these fabrics????

Dots....gotta love 'em!

I'm following a quilt along!  They'll be some ladybugs in it!

That will be it for now....keep those machines humming....
