    Hello Everyone
    Here is a top I completed today while home from work. (well I have to put one more border on it) It is called Earth's Window. This one is going to be my very first attempt at hand quilting! (wish me luck :-) )
    Hugs

    Thank you everyone! I love landscape fabrics and I finally was able to put this together. It was a simple pattern and went together nicely (except for one of the cornerstone rows which we fought about 4 times before I got him to work right lol)
    I will post pictures as I hand quilt it. I am thinking I am going to use different colors and different things in each window. Perhaps some stars in the night sky, a sun in the day sky....we shall see
    Thank you all again for your wonderful compliments
    And thanks for the vote of confidence Nikki-I sure need it :-)
    Hugs
    April

    April, you did a great job on this quilt! I love your thought of stars in the night sky, a sun in the day sky, maybe some sea shells at the beach. Great idea and a great quilt!

    Great work April. Just take the hand quilting slow & you'll pick up speed with a bit of experience. Good luck & enjoy.

    I love it! I so want to make one someday! Perfect for someone who lives in a small space to give a sense of spaciousness and nature. A great gift for a city dweller too!
