    I've missed so much here on this site. I tried to touch base every now and then. Anyway, I finally got my granddaughter's quilt finished at about 3 months of trying to get to it. I have 3 more projects that I need to and then I need to make Christmas gifts. I should have started in January.
    This is a disappearing 9 patch, cotton fabric and backing, warm & white batting with an extra layer of high loft polyester. I used So Fine thread on top and Bottom Line in the bobbin. Hope you like. Hope she likes it too.

    She wanted the stars a loops quilting design but I just had to do something else with the border. She's not a foofy girl so feathers were out.

    Thank you ALL for your very nice comments.

    Quilt4U Thank you, thank you
    Loretta: Thank you. It's poofy but still a little stiff. It will need a few washing to loosen that baby up. I prefer them with that old feeling

    Thank you Dawn, you're too kind, really.
    Thank you Joeyoz :-)
    Thank you Sewnsewer2? NOT.........if she doesn't show up soon, I'm keeping it LOL
    Thank You Jim's Gem. I bet you are............Jim's Gem
    Thank you, mytwopals
    Thank you, Ell. How R U?
    Thank you bearpaw
    Thank you, mimee4
    Thank you, SulaBug. Nice to know I was missed. I've missed myself
    gaigai, Thank you for the very kind words. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right? LOL
    Thanks, Nursie76. I'm ready to start another one. I mangage to two or three a year. I want MORE. It might be a colder winter this year.
    Thank you, eparys. All of you can do a name like that. It's easy, even on your DM.


    Apparently I missed a bunch of you. THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

    It's gorgeous! But I'm wondering what you mean by this?
    "warm & white batting with an extra layer of high loft polyester"
    Do you mean you laid down the warm & white & then the high loft on top of that while you were sandwiching your quilt?
