One Flower Wednesday and More......

 I know I said I'd be making more stones and adding them to my quilt but...I made a flower instead - much more colorful!  Visit Karen at One Flower Wednesday to see beautiful blooms and growing gardens.

I also finish a BOM quilt I start in 2008.  I was given a pattern and fat eights each month.  I started out hand piecing the blocks together and then took a class on machine piecing.   I finished putting the binding on Sunday night and all that's left to do is a label and maybe a sleeve to hang it.


 And the quilting....Dan did an amazing job!  Just look at the quilting - pictures don't do it justice.




Just one more thing...
                       
There's a fun swap or 2 starting.  Cheryll at Gone Stitchin' has posted the Alphabet Challenge which has you collect/make items starting with the letter A .  I've already started.  I just need to learn how to make an apron...
                                                                                      
Cheryll has also posted a 12 inch Mini Club that I'm excited to join read about it here.


              Happy Quilting!
