    Back in November 2010, before I had shoulder surgery, I posted a Longarm Bandit vent. Anyway, I never got back in touch with the said "longarmer/friend" as she has moved, and I figured I would finish it myself. I echo quilted on my Janome 6600. It is not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but, after removing the previous borders and adding new ones, I am pleased with the way it turned out. My daughter also wanted throw pillows as opposed to pillowcases. Finally, here is the final project. I started it for her 30th birthday, and she'll be 34 soon. The important thing is she loves it!!!

    The pattern is " Star Medallion" by Jean Boyd...I used 6 of the blocks (37"x37")

    Again the label is an iron-transfer that I coloured and outlined

    Thankyou for all your generous comments. I know it is not perfect, but, what a HUGE relief just to be finished this one. I have learned alot since making that one and would like to make another one sometime using fabrics with more contrast. Just need to toss the quilt in the wash, and then I'll be delivering it to my DD next week.

    What a wonderful quilt. Your label is especially lovely. I have never labeled any of my sewings maybe will try something soon.
