Rosie the Quilter

I finished my Rosie the Quilter quilt tonight! I have to wash it to make it all nice and crinkly yet, but everything is sewn! Once a month a group of us get together to sew. Nann found these Rosie panels and gave us the challenge of making something with them. This is mine.

And here is the back.

And look at the fun quilting. The center has scissors, needles, pincushions, thimbles, rotary cutters and spools of thread.


And the border is little rotary cutters!

Your quilting is awesome! 1) how do you mark and 2) how the heck do you follow the "lines" so perfectly?

I like your quilt. I just bought two of the panels you have on the front. I have not seen the big panels yet. I must keep looking. The quilting motifs are fun, too.

The quilting is very fun! We have a real "Rosie" in our guild. She turned 95 last year and during the war worked on airplanes down near Savannah! With her sweet little southern accent who would think it!
