one of my favorites!

Here's picture of one of my favorite quilts.
(I DO have a lot of favorites though).

I made this last year as a wedding gift.

There have been a lot of weddings
in my sphere of friends...
actually they're
mostly kids of friends...:)

(Don't know why this picture isn't bigger.....?)


This quilt started with a pack of
30's charm squares.

I made lots of half square triangles,
and then tried to figure out how to put them together.

I put those big outside stars together and then
I had a big opening in the middle!
The pot and leaves came
and then the vine.
It all finally fit together!

I love the way it turned out.
don't you?


Thanks Heather for taking a picture!
(I forgot to take a picture before I gave it away!)
Don't do that.
I'm OFF to quilt 24/7.
I'll be missing the family
and missing blogland!
There will be a running commentary in my head as I sew this week.
"I'll tell them this.....and this....and that....."

  2. Wow, did that quilt ever come together nicely! Beautiful.

    I once saw an idea for a border that I thought would look great on a table runner so I made it as the outer border first and then had to figure out what to make for the middle. Your project was much more ambitious!

    Have a great week of quilting, quilting, quilting . . .

  3. I love reading your blog, Beth. Partly because I can totally hear how your voice would sound saying these things! Hope your week away helps you to come back refreshed!
    -ps, I got my sewing machine back from the guys... Perhaps I'll even get to something besides knitting?
