Oh Beautiful Braid Quilt

April 15, 2011

I did it!!  It's done!  My first quilt with a curling feather border!!  I love it and want to keep it!!  I may shed a tear when I hand it over to my client.
I'm just giving you a peek.  You'll have to wait until Monday to see the whole quilt.  Trust me it'll be worth the wait!  :-)

  20. Beautiful! You do such good work! I have to pack up my Bee (longarm) for the move and it's killing me. I've put it off until the last minute. I just can't bear the thought of her being in storage.
