14 in 2014 - First Finish

I know my poor little blog is feeling very neglected, but I've been quilting up a storm.

Remember this?

It took way longer than I thought it would, but it is now done.  D.  O.  N.  E.!

Lots of quilting late into the night.  LOTS of bobbin changes!

Some quilting stitches I've never tried before - chrysanthemums and whatever you might want to call those swirly things...

And some that I'm pretty comfortable with, like leaves and herringbones...

And while I haven't been able to get a good picture yet - can you believe they've closed schools for the next 2 days because they expect snow!  In Florida!! - I'm pretty pleased with this one.

The pattern was designed by my very own daughter.  You can find it here.   The fabric is Beechwood Park, by Jeanean Morrison, and it is backed by one of the prints in the line.  It finished at about 59" x 70". 


My first finish for 2014.  One down, 13 to go.


  1. oh it's lovely! what a talented daughter you have!

  2. Sooo worth the effort! It looks great, reminds me of an antique top!

  3. Oh my, I am speachless about your FM quilting. so so gorgeous!!!

  4. LOVE the chrysanthemum! I will keep that filed away in my brain for spaces like that! I used to draw chrysantemum's all the time in grade school - all over everything, LOL.

  5. you give me courage to quilt on my little sewing machine. you do such lovely quilting patterns.


I love comments! Please - make my day!
