I am excited to announce that I have finally finished the Square Dance quilt. It was a Sue Daley design done with English paper piecing. I love the way it turned out – and so does my mother. Consequently, this quilt will be going to live at her house where it will lead a thrilling life lying at the end of her antique bed! She is all aglow at the prospect and so I couldn’t be more pleased!
The photo was taken at the farm. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a shot of the back (It was so cold out I had to keep running in and out of the house to warm up during the setup.)
I decided to go with a plain backing. Just one fabric – a golden/brown print. It is a nice contrast to the brightness of the front. The binding is a dark wine red. It ended up being a nice quilt for my first applique adventure – now ON TO THE NEXT!
My mom, sister and I are going to be participating in the Local Quilt Store Hop on Feb. 7th so I am hoping to stock up on some bargains to upgrade the stash!
But before I can think about any more crafty projects I have to get to the store to buy some birthday gifts. My youngest turns 13 tomorrow! A full fledged teenie-bopper (and filled with that o’so wonderful attitude that goes with her new status) and my wonderful husband turns 55 on Saturday!
Better get off this computer and get busy!!
