Ready for # 6....

Sweet Dreams is quilted and ready


I managed feathers down the coin strips...


some whirls around the stitcheries...


and clouds around the words...


feathers and wriggly lines.....


I am still learning free motion quilting so there are kinks etc but it will hold together and be nice and cuddly to wrap a grandiebaby ....

.... 'tis lovely to have it done....

I wonder which of the two will go to it's new home at the end of the month????


... we have to view it through the peeper....


Thanks Marina for the Quiltober challenge...... it's not too late to join us and get that quilt you have been meaning to finish done....

Love the quilting you done on sweet dreams. It looks fantastic. Hugs,

Annette said...

the only thing that the sweet dreams quilt needs is that grand baby.... job well done. You will find that the more you machine quilt the easier it will become.
