Off To the quilter

I just love my quilting friend. :) She has agreed to take on yet another one of my projects. She has, "Mary's Rose Garden" it will be my mothers. I am also sending her "Feathered PinWheel". This top was done 2 years ago. I marked it and even started some quilting. BUT! I hate the hand quilting part. So, Elle said she would take it on and finish it for me. LOL I am going to owe her my first born, lol wonder what Amanda's husband would say about that. LOL

The sewing machine has been put away

That's right! LOL I have put the sewing machine away. She was ready for some much needed time off. LOL I have TWO! hand quilting projects I want to get finished. So, today I pulled out my Feathered Star. I have most of the white background quilted and will start the stars when that's done. I still have to decide what color quilting thread to use on them. I have decided to put more quilting on the white. I want this quilt to be a "show worthy" quilt and that means, when a quarter is dropped on the quilt it must touch quilting. I have to many open spots. This is my winter project. I'm looking forward to some down time.
