    So Excited! Finished first full sized quilt for myself!

    Well, I finally did it! I attended a quilt retreat with scrap quilting guru Bonnie Hunter in July. The pattern class she taught was with her My Blue Heaven pattern. Here it is Beginning of February and yesterday....drum roll please.....my first full sized quilt that I am keeping for DH and I is now gracing our bed. I named my version, "Starry, starry night" (the name of a pop song when we were much younger). I even sewed down the binding by hand, which isn't my favorite thing, but does give such a nice finish to a binding. (Can you tell I love blue?) Thanks for looking.

    Thanks for all your kind words.
    Karen, the doggy was our youngest daughters when she was smaller and Pound Puppies were all the rage. We just recently unearthed it. (BTW she just celebrated her 30th b-day on Tuesday.) She has been living in New Zealand for about 3.5-4 years and I guess it just kinda makes me feel little closer to her.

    It's a beauty! And sewing the binding on is my least favorite part of quilting. But, I watch TV as I do it and that helps.
