What a weekend! Saturday the temps were in the 90’s…Monday it barely broke 60 degrees. I swear I almost turned on the furnace. I know, I’m a wimp. We had one heck of a storm roll through Saturday. Our electricity was going on and off. I kept Annie unplugged. I wasn’t taking any chances!!
I recently had the pleasure of quilting for Cathy of Quilting on Main Street blog. If you are not familiar, Cathy has a wonderful blog. She is always busy with some beautiful projects. Recently, she made a Christmas wreath out of wool pennies that I absolutely love. I very much enjoy reading her blog. So, imagine my excitement when she asked me to quilt her Ginger Belle made from French General’s Rural Jardin fabric! Ginger Belle is a Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co. pattern. I just “oooohhhed and ahhhhhed” when the quilt arrived at The QP. It’s beautiful. Cathy’s piecing is perfection. All of this made me a nervous wreck!!! BUT I think I did GOOD! 🙂 I’ll warn you now, I couldn’t stop taking photos of this quilt!
Cathy pretty much left the quilting up to me. She mentioned she would like the star blocks to stand out. You know me…that translated to there is going to be feathers somewhere on this quilt!
You know that I have to show the back. The backing was a cream flannel.
I LOVE the back!!! I chose to go with a cream colored thread so it would have that whole cloth look. All you see is that beautiful texture of the quilting!! Are you all pictured out yet?? Just a few more… 🙂
I actually remembered to snap a pic before I started quilting.
Kristin took pity on me and wanted to help me with a little frogging.
She’s going to love this photo!! She mentioned that frogging is awful and she’s sticking to her day job! LOL!! Can you tell that I love this quilt??? Just a little. It makes me want to make one exactly like it! Cathy had planned on giving this quilt as a gift, but changed her mind once when she got it back. My heart did cartwheels when I heard that!
Today is the first day of Middle School for the girls. They are so excited and a little nervous. It seems like just yesterday was their first day of school. Time flies.
