Better late .....!

Finally machine quilted Ruby Garden, a quilt I started hand embroidering the blocks back 2010.  Pieced the top in 2013 and machine quilting in April 2014 .... Sigh!


But .... it's a done deal!  Love that pattern.  Had to re-work the finishing instructions!  That didn't help in the amount of time it took to complete this quilt.

I'm continuing to work on the Words to Live by quilt.  Here is block one - Joy!


Taking the time to prep all of my blocks (when applicable) just makes it easier for me to get the project completed in a timely matter.  It becomes a mass production quilting project! lol

Thanks for stopping by!  Cheers!

Love both of the quilt pieces... My philosophy is "quilting on my time...for the fun of it." These are beautiful...

The quilt looks beautiful and love the quilting designs. I have some i need to quilt so trying to decide on designs that will look nice in the plain blocks and I do have some design books, so hopefully I will get that done this year;)

The new block is beautiful, love applique but I seem to make a mess with ones like this, always come out cockeyed.
