Quilts Revisited

 You have seen this mini before but i didn't have the border quilted. I quilted the border but thought it needed a bit more. I added  2 more straight lines in teh ditch on the sides and called it good.
I am really happy with it.
To see the orginal check out this post: Aurora Quilt Show

 I used my Lapel glue stick for the label adn it worked like a charm!  This was a collaberative quilt with Libby. She showed her beautiful rendition with an appliqued border. Check it out! Thanks libby, this was so much fun working together on this.



While in NYC my daughter and I took the train to NJ and met my friend Jill. We brought show and tell (I brought my Amish Sunflower)  and how fun it was for me to see three of the Midnight Stars quilts from my quiltalong!! Left to Right- Susan, Barb, and Jill. (Sorry about that chick on your head Barb!)

You can find the link to step one here if you are interested.

To my delight Annette at Sunshine Yellow Blog finished her Cheddar Cheese & Crackers quilt. Adorable! I never get tired of seeing these little quilts from the quiltalongs.
You can find step one of that quiltalong here.

  1. Your little Amish quilt is very striking! How nice that you were able to visit friends in NJ and that they made your doll quilt! I'm almost finished quilting my second CC&C quilt. Yipee!!

  2. It's a perfect rendition from the original, it looks wonderful with the hand quilting. I just love the colours. Waving out to Jill and Barb, their quilts turned out great and so did Susan's.

  5. Bright, bold, and beautiful quilt. There's no question that the quilting on an Amish quilt of any size is an important part of its beauty. You made lovely choices for designs.
    Such fun to see the little trio of Midnight Star quilts in person, I'm sure.

  10. I love the fact that you handquilted your Amish Sunflower. Not as many projects get quilted by hand. It's nice to enjoy that aspect of quilt making once in awhile. It's lovely.

  11. That is a beautiful quilt, love the colors in it.
    I have been collecting hand dyed solids and Kelley gave me quite a few, so I plan on making some amish pieces myself. Will be good practice for my quilting too.
