    Mackinley's quilt

    Posting, as a quilt kit was a first for me and thought I'd share. Was very happy with the quilt kit, had ample fabric and the instructions were easy to understand (Thank goodness). I did want it a little bigger and was able to squeeze out an additional border. Very divided on how I wanted the backing as I favor creative backs but I caved and went with a plain polka dot fabric. I have been saving the label saying for over a year waiting for the perfect place to put it, it was hand embroidered. Except for the label, the quilt was machine pieced and machine quilted.

    Should have added, it's called "Color Me Happy" by toadusew creative concepts but I got it from one of the catalogs and now can't remember which one??????

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    So cute - those crayons look very realistic with the zigzag fabric.

    It looks like a lot of work, but so worth it. You did such a good job.

    Love the quilt and REALLY love the label.

    I LOVE all hand made, signed, labels as they truly add 'The Final Personal Touch' to all our work.

    PS I'm into genealogy research and truly love it when I find an ancestors signature. Your signature on this quilt hopefully will be appreciated in years to come.
