I'm done



The fun thing about starting a blog is I have lots of things to show.  Things I've been working on for a very long time are new to you.  So here is my latest finish... you probably recognize it since I got the idea from Jamie Muller over at the Moda Bakeshop.  This quilt is going in my beach house, when I get one.  I always love 3 Sisters fabrics and Martinique was no exception.  I saw it as being more beachy and the ruffles reminded me of waves so I turned it horizontally and made this with a bunch of charm packs.  In what can best be described as a moment of temporary insanity I decided to hand quilt this.  I wanted baptist fans to go with my wave image and I was pretty sure my machine quilting wasn't up to the task.  I also don't have a ruffle foot so that part was a bit of a nightmare.  In the end it was all worth it; )
