Donna, was that started, errr, umm, two years ago in Branson?  I think I remember it. It's lovely!  Good job!  **

So now I don't feel so bad that this one that has been in the works since this year's Branson retreat.   I finally had a deadline for it, so it's been nonstop sewing since July.  Between this and gardening, I've been sadly missing my online friends here, but I should be around more now.

For my adult niece, a housewarming present...

     

There are 256 stars on this quilt.  That's 1024 flying geese, not that I was counting.  I was happy that the quilt *just* fit on my mid-arm.  Here is a close up of the quilting...

       

The background fabric is white mottled with gray, and I quilted with gray thread.  I know her mid-size dog (like ours) gets on the bed, so I thought this color would help hide any evidence of that.

My niece is an unconventional young woman, and I was worried that the quilt might be too traditional, so I added some funky fabrics on the back.  The sugar skulls are minky, but the vintage swimsuit fabric is cotton.

Nancy - Love, Love, Love that quilt top.   You did a great job on it.   If your niece doesn't want it.......(hint hint).   Can't wait to see what project you'll tackle next!   (something without stars I bet!)

Nancy!!! Oh my, my, my...fabulous!  What a gorgeous quilt and your quilting is absolutely beautiful!  So, If Annette's "hint" didn't work, do you think mine would?  lol  Your niece is one very fortunate lady.  Incredible housewarming gift.

I have three small finishes.  Each one approximately 39 x 39 or a little less, but they are finished and already gifted.

Lidiya's  

Peter's

Gordon's

Just finished the first two yesterday.  These are for my three local great grandchildren
