Wednesday

I've almost completed the challenge quilt. After the binding is finally done, I will rinse it, remove marks, block, and think of a title for the label. Getting close.

On another subject, I want to put in a plug for this company which advertises on the Quilt Studio list page. I ordered one of their "No See 'Ums" quilt hanging systems and love it. Brackets attach to the wall either with adhesive or with screws, and then a rod goes into the quilt sleeve, and a hook slips through the fabric (no damage) and attaches to the wall bracket. Slick--nothing except the quilt is visible. Worth checking out the website for a clearer explanation. They have more traditional hangers too, but I like this one because it doesn't hide part of the quilt.

Oh, no. Miriam! This was done by machine, and that took long enough for me!

Wonderful colors in the basket quilt and the quilting adds so much beauty.

Gorgeous! I really love the tiny purple line near the border--really sets it off. Well done! Best of luck!!

I love it Kay! the extra time spent on that border was well worth it. It's really lovely. I can't get over how great that challenge fabric looks.

Ohmigosh, what a scrumptious quilt! The colors are just amazing. Congrats!

Oh, Kay ... this is exquisite. I think the challenge fabric is just awful, but you've made it a perfect focal point with your other color choices. I love that you let it have its spotlight, but the other colors and design stand up to it beautifully. The workmanship and special touches like scalloped border and purple-piped edge are perfect. What great choices you made, all 'round.
