    FINALLY finished... but pay no attention to that man behind the quilt!

    I fell in love with this fabric at a quilt show last year. I started this (my second pieced quilt) in January. The quilted border was a bear and took forever, so I think I'll see if Craftsy has a class on quilting with a walking foot. This is an easy pattern called Austin Blues, and the top went together pretty quickly. I couldn't have done it without my BFF, Elmer's Washable School Glue! Not a single pin touched this quilt, and I'll never pin again. Next Christmas, this quilt will go to a teen girl at our local abuse shelter.

    And that man behind the cur...I mean quilt is my DH, Jeff, who is a charming enabler, but doesn't understand why I need more fabric. Don't I have a shelf full all ready?

    Your quilt is beautiful, just love yellow and black combos. Your quilting is wonderful, the border design is perfect and I am impressed that you did this on your dsm with a walking foot. Nice job.

    very pretty quilt! I love yellow! Can you share your process using the Elmer's glue? Did you start in the middle and work your towards the corners? Does it wash out nicely? I think I'd like to give it a try sometime.

    I like that a lot!!! I like the color combination and the way you quilted it!! Well done!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Beautiful quilt, very modern.

    One question though, ONLY ONE shelf?? good gracious, I have a whole closet and a few bookcases full. And my mom actually has 2 "annex" rooms of fabric plus the 3 large bookcases in her sewing room.

    Mary Ann this quilt is just beautiful. I can understand why you fell in love with the fabric. Your quilting is super. Are you sure this is only the second quilt you have pieced? Question. Why wait until Christmas to give the quilt to the young girl? You do awesome work. Look forward to seeing more of your creations. BrendaK
