    A friend gave me some embroidered blocks to make into a quilt about 13 years ago. They got packed away in a box and almost lost. I ran across them recently AND finally they have been made into a quilt. I have no excuse for this but I feel like a 50 lb rock has been lifted off my heart...I would think about them on & off and feel really guilty. Now I can move on.

    It has turned out so nice and crinkly quilty after it was washed and dried. Its probably a good thing I didn't do it back then...I've improved in skills just a bit over the years. Everything went together smooth as butter. Thank Goodness!

    I remember embroidering those same blocks when I was a teen. Don't know what ever happened to them...maybe gave them away.

    The stack of quilt tops that I have been gently ignoring is next on the list. The first one being a contemporary brown & turquoise that I made for my step daughter. She lives in Germany and her birthday is Feb 4th. I gotta get busy! =)

    That is so pretty. Love the fabric that you have used for the sashing. I think it suits it well!

    Aren't you glad it is done? Especially, because it made up so cute!! I embroidered blocks for my oldest daughter a baby quilt (she is almost 44 years old now). Got the blocks all done but never got the quilt made until youngest daughter was born 4 years later. That quilt was used and used until it is almost worn out. I think the blocks are still good though. I really should take it apart and put new fabric in it for sashings and borders. Maybe that is on my to-do list for this year!!!
