Have I got a finish to share with you!

Check out my latest finish! I've always wanted a 2 color solid quilt! And now I have an awesome one! I started this last fall at quilt camp. Laura did a mystery and this was it! I just got it back from the quilter, got it bound and washed to make it all crinkly!


Thought you were worried I wouldn't have anything for you? I"m still here, just busy, busy, busy with proms, graduations, wedding plans, and yes - work. So hang in there, I may not be around as much, but I"m still here!

I am always attracted to two color quilts. Your piecing is so good. And your quilter did a beautiful job. I like the way that the quilting design just fits in and around the stars.

2 color quilts are THE BEST! This one is so pretty. Nice quilting. Nobody pays attention to quilting as much as they should, but this quilt is quite well quilted and just beautiful.
