I just purchased these "Flour Sack" fabrics from www.holllyhockquilts.blogspot.com on ebay....great fabrics. Glenna is the real deal. I've known her for years and her fabrics are top quality, should you need any ventage fabrics. I bought them for my Restoration Quilt business....they will definitely be used

Finally started quilting on a special gift for a special niece, it's going to be a surprise. Anyway, it's a pattern by Myrtle Allen, Oklahoma. I fused the fabric down and machine stitched them down thru the batting but not backing. I didn't want the top threads to show thru to the back. Then I machine quilted thru the background. It's turning out great. I'm going to use an Invisible thread on the sashing, or the pink thread would show thru on the back.

This quilt took me quite awhile, I made many quilts while working steadly on this one. It's all hand needleturn applique. Kaffe fabrics except for a few hand dyed fabrics. I changed the design on the outside border for what I call "the littld hands" I didn't care for those at all. The background fabric is a white on white cotton. It's Queen Size. Crosshatch plus around many of the applique pieces. I am so glad I stuck with it and it's finished!!!!!any questions, just contact me. Oh yes, taking into account that I traveled a lot and worked full time while making this, I constantly worked on it in the evenings. From first needle to last stitch, took me 3 yrs 2 months and 18 days....
