    My first since an accident!

    It's been a LONG time since I posted a quilt that I not only made, but quilted.
    I started this quilt since we got home in January....my first since the accident (I fell and broke 2 bons in left elbow, fractured my left wrist and fractured my right elbow --- had surgery on the left elbow)!!! I'm especially proud since the Ortho Surgeon said I wouldn't be able to use the longarm!!! LOL...yeah, right......I may need Aleve every night from the pain, but I'm proving him wrong!!!!!

    This is a lap quilt for my daughter -- 47" x 47"........I used Warm and Natural and MetroEmb thread. The pattern is called Hana Bouquet from Kona Bay Fabrics website.

    I attempted that little squiggle stuff in the small rectangle and triangles....man, that's harder than I thought!. Which reminds me.....I did NOT screw up! The triangles are not the same size...pattern calls for 2" square and 1 1/2" square. The picture of the quilt even shows the oddness of it. It's driven me nuts.....and if I ever do this pattern again, I'll make them the same size! LOL

    The binding will be in the dark green like the inner border. I didn't do a closeup of that border. I replicated the leaf pattern that was in the fabric.

    Love your color combination and pattern - great job!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Dee, that looks great! No one would ever believe you are recovering from an injury like that when they see your quilting.

    Congratulations! What an ordeal you have been through and came out triumphant! I love your quilt.
