    These are some more pictures of the quilt I made for my sister.

    I had leftover blocks so I pieced the back and then my friend Dwynn suggested that I embroider the label in the middle, so I did. (great idea friend).

    This is my favorite quilt that I have made so far. Hopefully with many more to come out of my sewing room.

    Here is the label I embroidered, on my machine, in the middle of the quilt back. Even though she only got to enjoy it for a little while ( she passed from cancer July 10) she loved the back the most and that's what she had facing up on her bed.

    I named this Wish Upon A Star because it was for my sisters 25th wedding anniversary and her theme was going to be stars and angels.

    I had leftover blocks because of redesigning in the middle of having all these blocks done so I had to do something with them. So this is my first attempt at a pieced back.

    Just as pretty, if not prettier the second time around :-)

    Joey, do you do your own long arm quilting or do you send out?

    Oops, never mind, I just took a closer look at the label and see a quilted by on it. Love the idea of the label in the middle BTW. Especially when it is as nicely done as this.

    First of all those colors are awesome!! sooo my style:)

    Second- Great thought to piece the back that way! It is just as striking as the front! At first i didn't realize the first pic was the back and I loved it that way..LOL

    I'm sure the quilt will be loved for yrs to come:)

    I send out. WISH I had my own long arm. I can do small lap quilt and wall hangings on my regualr machine. The larger stuff is just too hard to handle.

    Thank you for all the wonderful comments.

    Wow Joey (funny that is my younger sisters nickname), I saw the posting and read your story on the other link and then came here to see the back, and just sat here and said WOW!!!
    I agree with one of the ladies on the other link, this is a masterpiece. No wonder she loved the back.

    The back is just as beautiful as the front!!! Way to go, and what a great idea - to piece the back like that.
