A short break to normal transmission.

l received an email while l was away that my favorite
 machine quilter had completed quilting one of my new quilts.

 l was excited to see the photo's she sent. Tomorrow l am off to pick it up, and
this weekend l will put the binding on and tick that job off the list.

Karen from Quilts On Bastings has done a stunning job.
She entered the quilt in the Bloggers Quilt Festival
 and has been  nominated in 2 categories.

Go read Karen's story and if you want,
 give her a vote.
 l did!!!

Thanks for visiting.

  2. OH. MY. GOODNESS! The quilting is beautiful. I've not seen that pattern before but it goes perfectly with your top - so nice!

  3. You have found a wonderful machine quilter!! She really did your top justice. The background quilting is very pretty but I particularly like the attention to detail in the red pieced blocks. Lucky you!

  12. Stunning! Both the quilt and the quilting. I wonder if Miss Rose has any idea how her exhibition has fueled a renewed love of Red & White quilts around the world?

  13. I voted as soon as I saw the quilt in the nominations! It's absolutely stunning!!I think you sometimes choose patterns on purpose with wonderful quilting space for Karen to do her magical quilting.
