    deanneellen came to my house a few weeks ago and brought me this beautiful 102x120 quilt. Deanne had her sister with her and a friend. This quilt is a family affair quilt, everyone made a block and signed there name's to them. This quilt was a Wedding gift, 11 yr's after the fact... :) Plus she is a English major so some the fabric's are in that theme.
    the only thing they asked was to be careful around the rhinestones on the belly dancer... and not to do heavy quilting on it so it will be cozy..and the cross stitch block to just go around it.
    We used black thread so it is very hard to see, the quilting, and light thread in the lighter blocks..
    I did a lot of SID and out lining.. feathered in the blue and black sashings.. I made clocks in all four corners but they did not show up in the pictures, I put letter's and questions marks exclamation marks.. in the green corner stones...
    All of the watches are out lined, and i did a scroll feather in the border.
    The backing has blocks the full length of the center... Very beautiful blocks and piecing!
    Maybe when Deanne get's it she can take better picture's.

    Here it is Deanne I hope you all like it as much as I loved quilting it...

    Thanks for looking

    Thank you so much, Lynn for quilting this. I absolutely love it! I enlarged the pictures and I can see some of the quilting. It looks great! I will try to take more pictures of it when I get it home.

    What a very unusual, interesting quilt. I really, really like it. If only the quilting showed up in the photo more. It sounds as if you were very intricate!!

    I just bought a mid-arm late last year and just finished a 90x120 with a lot of SID. I can now appreciate all the extra stitching done...this quilt is beautiful! Your quilting is wonderful!
