    Summer Wind (Miss Rosie) Completed!

    It took me months to choose the Scarborough Fair fabric. Then more months to select a pattern! Then more months to wait until I felt ready for the challenge...Then endless weeks to figure out which of the thirty-odd FQ would go in which border and more weeks piecing and sewing the medallion and the borders...and making up my own sash and border to make it bigger...and then weeks of indecision about how to quilt it and when to stop. Finally, I decided to have a label done - my first labeled quilt!
    ( I know, shame, maybe done 14 quilts now, no labels!)

    Net net, it was a bit too much of a 'stretch' project for me, but I got through it and I think my daughter Ali will love it! The Miss Rosie pattern was excellent - page after page of instruction and diagrams on each border - and Dawn did a great job on my label. I'm going to carry it from Boston to Los Angeles to give it to Ali in two weeks.

    I have to thank you all who have given me good advice and encouragement and inspiration over the last two years since I started quilting. Thanks for letting me share!

    I think it's one of the most beautiful quilts I've seen in a long time. What a lovely gift/heirloom this will be. You should be very proud.

    It may have taken you awhile but it sure turned out to be a beautiful quilt. That one is worth the wait, a treasure for sure.

    Ali will be thrilled to get such a gorgeous quilt and she'll just love the special label. When I give a quilt to my family members the first thing they do is flip it over to see the label!

    That is SO beautiful! I love the floral fabrics and they're perfect with this pattern! I can so identify with your indecision.....I'm only working on a baby quilt and it's taking me way too long. I don't know if I'd ever be able to do a quilt like yours but maybe a small version? It's so beautiful it makes me feel good just looking at it! The label is really special and Ali is a very lucky daughter to have it!!
