I just received an e-mail from a faithful follower asking if I was alright as I had not posted in awhile. Thank you Linda, yes, I am just fine. I am absolutely flattered that you would look for me, that is so nice of you...here is a big thank you hug!!!!.
So I will show you what has occupied my time, apart from a few other things, but this project was the most time consuming. It was 4 days of steady work, took a 3000yard cone of thread and I forgot to count the bobbins, but there were many. Before I show the pictures (I know it doesn't work that way) I want to tell you that i bought this Quilt top from "Aunt Beas Quiltshop" on E-Bay some time ago. A great source for those that want to practice machine quilting techniques without spending a fortune on making a top. this Quilt top cost an amazing $65.00 plus shipping, unbelievable for the amount of work and detail it contains. I teamed the top with a Quilters Dream 100% washable Wool batting and a perma press Muslin backing. The machine quilting consists of millions of tiny shells, a gazillion tiny stipples, and some feathers around the center block. The inner border features over/under feathers and the outer border some swirly whirly leafy ferny things.
