One Project Finished!!!

My Wounded Warrior quilt with stars quilting.I love the stars in the sashing ( super easy!!). It called Country Spirit...the pattern is from BOM. Look under the free patterns on left in the Quilts of Valor section.They have some nice free patterns.I like the way it turned out and have started one for my husband...same fabrics.


I have been quilting, but have no pics to show. I machine quilted a Wounded Warrior quilt and a Stack and Whack quilt for a friend...may I'll get photos when she binds them. I am also in the process of adding the binding for a Wounded Warrior quilt to turn in at tonight's Guild meeting...I better get with it!! HOT here in North Carolina...good sewing weather!!!

practice...practice...and more practice!!!

I have a quilt top I made last year with snowball and Irish chain blocks that I want to do feathers on. So, now I am in the process of becoming more consistent with them...I am practicing feathers that will go in triangles and also making round ones. I also have ordered a ruler base/extension table so I can stitch in the ditch on it too. That will mean More practice when that arrives. The quilt will be for me, BUT I hope it looks great when I finish it. I think I will soon be ready to take the big step.
