Tah, Dah a flimsy....!

As Darlene would call it. I wasn't able to finish it last night, as planned. I ran out of steam! However, I did manage to finish it today and I also ran out of steam! lol I cannot stand for long periods of time and must often take rest breaks. I keep forgetting or would that be ignoring the fact that it's barely been a week since I've had major surgery.

This is it! The completed hand applique quilt My Favorite Things - Cabin Fever Designs by Robyn Pandolph. I started this quilt in the Spring of 2001. The original border called for a 4 1/2 inch strip, but I preferred to make it a bit wider and added a 6 1/2 inch border. It will drape a twin size much better.

I haven't decided how I will machine quilt this project. I'll sleep on it tonight. Tomorrow I will proceed to sandwich the quilt and perhaps start machine quilting it. I'm hoping to complete this quilt before my time comes up as UFO Queen. Wish me energy! lol

I'm off to catch some zzzzzz.

Carole, it's stunning - simply stunning! That pink border fabric from the Folk Art Wedding line will always be a favorite!

Oh what a cute quilt, you did a great job! Does this quilt have a home? Will it be a wallhanging. Glad to see you have some energy back.

That is so pretty! I know you can get it done. Slow and easy. You have plenty of time! Your health comes first.

That is so pretty Carole. Now take it easy with the pinning, lots of rests. There's always the next day.

That turned out really cute, Carole! I remember after having my first C-section being surprised at how quickly I'd wear out and not being able to stand for long. Keep taking it easy and before you know it, you'll be feeling more yourself. At least with the machine quilting, you can work on your quilt sitting down. Occasional naps are good too! LOL!

This appliqué quilt is just so cute. You did a great job and that after a major operation. Don´t forget to rest though, the flimsy won´t run away! Take care.

Your quilt is beautiful. You do nice applique. I'm the buttonhole queen myself. I wish I could do applique but it's just for me. Guess I just need to have patience huh?
