Blue Butterfly Quilt and Feather Star

Finished Deb's Quilt. The Applique is hand quilted and the rest machine using a Janome with walking foot and free motion.

New Hand quilting project. The Feather Star is a pattern of Fons and Porter in a series of magazines I believe in 2004. One of my first quilts.  It has been stashed for some years and now it is time to quilt.

Tatted doilies and Cross Stitch Sampler

Finished Nancy Tracy's Doily. It is tatted with size 10 Lizbeth threads.
Started the Spring Doily by Renulek and tatted with size 40 Lizbeth Blue Ice.

Finished the sampler found in a thrift shop for $2. An unknown person x-stitched the alphabet  and saying. I undid all the knots on the back and completed the rest.  It is a 1970's kit, stamped on 100% Belgian Linen. The thread was missing.
 Started the binding and have 3 more sides to do. The applique flower border is hand and the top blocks are machine. Lots of quilting and glad it is at the end to enjoy.
