MOM'S QUILT - IT'S GETTIN' THERE!


Please excuse the "meh" picture...I was standing on a step-stool trying to get a good shot, lol.  Step-stools and I are NOT good friends!  Additionally, the two tables are a smidge too high for me.  DH could lower them, but then they would probably be too low and cause my back to hurt too much.  I can't wait until someday when I have a table that works at MY height, lol.  

All I have left to do is the candy border with the embroidered corners and then I can sandwich it and begin to quilt.  Of course, I do need to press it before I sandwich it...there are wrinkles galore!

I'll post more pics when I get it further along.  Take care, my friends....

  4. Lin, it is gorgeous, I love the colours and the cupcake border is such a lovely addition to an already fabulous quilt. I am sooo glad that you planned and started early enough that you have been able to work on it and it will be done for Christmas. You know your body and you've produced something to be treasured.

    1. Thank you, sweetie! I'm really happy with how it is turning out. Of course I would love to be able to sit down and finish it all in one fell swoop...but you're right...my body makes me take things as I can. Maybe that is a GOOD thing though...I'm forced to slow down and smell the roses and I am REALLY enjoying the work I am doing on this quilt. I can't wait to give it to mom!
