Diamond in the Rough

Here is another stunning customer quilt that I custom quilted
before I moved. I ditched all the star sections and did a loose stipple
throughout the light blue background, I also did a feather motif
in the corner sections and did a
freehand starswirl in the outside
borders. This was my frist time
with stitch in the ditch on the
longarm and I'm not so proud of
the way it turned out, I will
definately think twice before
accepting another stitch in
the ditch again. Not until I can
get some good practice on my
own quilts first that is. Overall
I think it turned out quite nice,
it's a beautiful quilt.

Just before I moved I was the lucky winner of this wool kit from Crazy for Primitive Quilts and Gardens . Isn't it gorgeous!!! I'm so excited to start on it, I have never worked with wool before and the colors that were chosen for the kit are my favorite! Check out the little quilted card, isn't it darling! :) Thank you so much for drawing my name and sending it all the way to me, I will be sure to post a pic of it when completed. Actually the day I took this photo, I had planned to start it right away and the very next day we received word of our move. So back in the bag it went and it's packed away with my other kits awaiting the new studio. Oh, by the way, construction begins this weekend!!!!
