Past Projects

We are moving at the end of the month - we bought a house!  So instead of packing or hastily sewing to finish up a few UFO's before packing, I am going to wax reminiscent about past projects.

First up is Dad's Raven quilt, done last year for him for Christmas.  He had seen it in another colorway in Skagway while mom and he were on a cruise earlier in 2009. I called the shop and they sent me a kit.  This took me about 2 weeks of off-and-on sewing.  I was afraid of the machine applique as I had never done it before, but  it turned out to be a snap!  I love the way the delectable mountains are turned and make a completely different presentation.  I had it quilted at Cornerstone Quilt Shop in Fairfield, using a modified feathers all-over pattern.
