I love finishes!……..

Especially ones that have turned out just the way I envisioned them! This quilt (Paula’s) was begun a bit ago and took some pondering and sketching and, well, you get the idea. It could have been done with an all-over stitch motif but so many of the piecing details would have disappeared  so, I decided each block deserved its own very special attention. Progress was noted in posts here, here and here. And, now, it’s done and has taken its first step in going to its home. This quilt is definitely one of my faves. The piecing was/is perfection. The finish lays as flat as the top that was brought to me……awesome!!!! And the photo finish!!……..004006007009008010011

And, now, on to the next wonderful quilt!!! The obsession/passion continues!!!!!……….

    Great job! Could you email me privately sometime? (you’re a no-reply blogger so I can’t seem to contact you throught the comments you’ve left on my blog.) I have started to quilt for others on my Janome and I have a few questions I thought you could help me with.

    lovely quilt. I wish I had this talent. your quilt is wonderful, love that swirl stitch and fabric color. 😀

    • treadlemusic says:

      Thank you so much for your kind words. The stitching of a quilt is what I am “obsessing” these days!!! LOL! What helps a lot is doodling on a dry erase board and sketch book plus a ton of practice sandwiches. “They” say to practice, practice, practice and I agree!! I’m so glad you stopped by!! Hugs……..
