home stretch....sort of



thanks to our winter, the quilting on the hawaiian is over half done.  the orange part is all quilted and now starting on the white background.  thinking this will definitely be finished by end of march or maybe sooner (snow again this weekend....LOL).   unashamedly bragging about how gorgeous this is...not worth 10k maybe like one in a hawaiian shop, but priceless to me.  as for machine work, still working on scrappy solid project but this weekend must make my double pink stars for the brackman sew along....otherwise we are enjoying hint of coming spring with longer days of more sunshine and a definite change in the air.  i even changed the desktop photo on my computer to lovely narcissus!

  1. Absolutely stunning, Grace! You must feel very happy with what you have accomplished here. Beautiful applique and quilting. Isn't the orange a batik? No easy task to needle, if it is. : )
