My place to share tales of stitching...quilts, knits and random thoughts.

Only a peek, since I don't have a large enough space that is not covered in cat hair to take a full size picture! I am so thrilled to finish my mom's Kaffe Fasset Nine Patch. Here is the flower design that I put in the alternate nine patch blocks: Since the cream-on-cream thread did not photograph well, I added some detail on the computer to show the spiky fern border:

My machine ran for about nine hours for this quilt, so I probably spent at least 25 hours when you factor in the time to pin, wind bobbins, advance the rollers, etc. I only have two other customer quilts lined up, but plenty of my own stuff to finish. I love summer vacation!
