Another quick finish

OK, well it wasn't a quick finish, but I'm just posting a quick note! I just got this back from the long-armers. I made this quilt last July at a small retreat in Rockford. It was a mystery and I think it turned out pretty well! I figured I couldn't go wrong with solids! Well actually it is cherrywood dyes - but you know. So all I need to do now is sew down the binding on the back! Wooo Hoo!

Busy getting ready for Jenna's graduation party on Sunday and then the graduation is Tues night! So I'll be busy, busy, busy this weekend! Toodles!

What a host of beautiful girls we've produced between us, I really like that quilt design and your colour choices are beautiful. I'm always a bit hesitant about mystery quilts often I don't like the design and with fabric so expensive over here it seems a waste if you dislike the result but that is lovely - well done :o)

I like how the stars 'spin' on that quilt. Almost like pinwheels, but not quite. The longarmer did a great job too.

Ah your little girl is officially all grown up! Enjoy :)

Your quilt is awesome Dawn! Mystery quilts always scare me as I like to be in control (of my lack of control). Nice going!
