Relief! The baskets and stars is done!

Yesterday I finished the machine applique on the borders, and pieced and cut the corner blocks.    I decided in the end to do applique on the bottom corners only, as this will be going on her bed, and a pieced corner block in the upper border.  This morning I sewed on the borders and its strippy stars and baskets bottom cornerdone done done.  This quilt came sooo close to being a permanent UFO – and now its another top to be quilted.  The quilting will be fairly easy as I know my Mom likes the fluffy quilts, so I’ll use a high loft batting and very simple quilting, or even machine tying.

So now I have a few tops to quilt – the mini red and white, nine patch and stars, the wonder blocks/somewhere in time (I had forgotten that one until now!), and the baskets and stars.  Hmmm…now I think my list of tops is too long!

About Me

I began quilt-making in January 2001, as therapy following diagnosis a chronic autoimmune condition. I enjoy creating and exploring hand and machine applique, machine piecing, english paper piecing, machine quilting, and machine embroidery. I have been working with Electric Quilt for several years and I'm comfortable with just about very aspect of using EQ to design pieced, applique, and embroidery quilts. I'm an early retired Mom with two teenager and a son who'll be married in Fall '09. My husband is my biggest quilting supporter.
