My mom always told me
never to "toot your own horn".
It was bragging and, besides,
others would see your good work and take notice.
I'm breaking that rule, but
I hope I'm not tooting too loudly.
I have completely finished
Dutch Chintz Medallion
63" x 63"
It's taken a year and a half,
6 installments of Quiltmania magazine,
a fabulous design by Di Ford,
It was fabulous to work with the Dutch Chintz
I had never done Broderie Perse applique before
or English Paper pieced hexagons.
The design brought forth new challenges and skills.
I didn't like how these football shapes didn't touch.
So I added some tiny circles to connect
And mitering borders
is always a challenge for me.
Then there was the decision on how to quilt it.
I combined both machine quilting in the ditch and
hand quilting the open areas.
Today it's done
and the label sewn on.
Tah Tah Dah!
