Everywhere I look I keep finding more of them. The sad thing is this one just needs a little "reverse sewing" on the inside border quilting and it'll be done. I was just so mad at myself when I was quilting it that I just folded it up and put it away.
This quilt is from Alex Anderson's applique book. The book and some hand dyed fabrics were given to me by my Secret Santa's Elf that year; he dyed them himself. My Secret Quilter for the year gave me the rest of the hand dyes. Then at Alex's retreat in 2004 I asked her if she could bring hers the next day so I could look at the quilting on it. She did. It was kind of fun to see them laying side by side! No doubt about which one was mine, but it wasn't that bad next to the original!
This is 1st Weekend which means I have to work on Christmas projects! I need to find the magazine that had a quilt I want to make for my oldest niece. Her sister's quilt has been made for over three years, but I can't give one without the other. They're 36 and 41 and still think about things like that! LOL! Guess I need to head upstairs and dig in those magazines on the bottom shelf of the bookcases.
