My first quiltie
Aside from just being blown away by the workmanship and the talent and skill and vision, I just love the pieces. They beg to be touched and looked at up close. One of my fondest desires is that I live long enough to some day produce a piece with that degree of perfection and beauty and skill.
In the meantime, I play! I have spent last evening and the better part of today sewing this little quiltie. It was really fun, like painting with fabric and thread. I'm not sure it's finished but if I add anything else it will be small.
Two of the things on it I got yesterday at Hancock Fabric. The birdie lace and the pearly trim were both 50% off. It was fun remembering I'd bought them and getting to add them to this.
It's just about 7.5" by 11". The piece with the girl on it was all there was. It's already quilted and everything but I wasn't happy with it so I stitched it to another piece and then quilted that. Remember, my machine knows one stitch --------------this one-------------so I got to do lots of turning back and forth and that was so much fun. I am easily entertained. LOL
