Deana: Quilting FINISHED and another block received by mail!

Yes, yes, yes, I have another top quilted!  I am preparing the binding now and hope to have the hand work done on it by the end of the weekend!  Oh does it feel GOOD!  

So, I went back and did a little history and discovered that I designed and made this quilt 15 years ago. YIKES!  It is ABOUT TIME!

What did I learn from this project?  NEVER EVER stipple and certainly NOT THAT MUCH!  This quilt took an entire cone of thread just for the top.  It was not worth it.








I also received this WONDERFUL block in the mail today from Shari.  Thank you Stashbee and thank you to all the wonderful ladies who are helping me to create  this beautiful snowball quilt.

YAY, done. The stippling looks beautiful, but way too much work and time!!!
Jennie's mother-in-law does a lot of stippling, but she has a big long-arm and controls it with one hand. It still takes lots of thread, but less time than free-hand on a sit-down.

Goodness! I wasn't even quilting 15 years ago. Three cheers for another UFO done and dusted.
