QUILTING IN THE SUMMER - AT LAST - AND LOOK WHAT I WON!!
In case all you think we do in the summer is go to the berry farms - here is a bit about quilting, Just to prove that I actually DO think about quilting in the summer.
Dorothy Baker had a give-away a while back - and I couldn't believe my eyes when I read my name as the winner. What a surprise - and a delight. She was giving away the 12 patterns for Santa Through the Year - and I can't wait to start working on it. I still have to finish my butterfly quilt - and as soon as that is done - I'm off and running with the Santas. I doubt that I will get it done for this holiday season - but I plan to give it a good try.
These are all the patterns
And here is her finished quilt. I hope mine comes out as great. It will be fun stitching the Santas for each month. Thank you so much Dorothy. If you haven't been to her blog - it is one of the best around - stop over some time.
And as for my quilting - I have almost finished the butterfly quilt - I did all the flowers and vines that were basted on the quilt and decided that one spot on the quilt needed a few more vines and flowers - so that will take another hour or two of work and then I'll be done.
This is just a small portion showing some of the butterflies and some of the flowers. I made that flowers with Grandmother Flower Garden pieces - very small. Each piece of the flower is about 1" or less across. This has been a fun quilt to make - but I'm glad that I am almost to the end. Then maybe I can start on the Santa quilt.
