Sparkling Jane's Debut

Hi There!

Okay, I haven't had a chance to share my progress
on any of my "on-the-go" projects.

Here's my "Sparkling Jane",
with her flange and her
hollies and berries.



NO, I'm NOT adding "vines"....
changed my mind.
*grin*

(corner) hollies and berries...

Now, here's the question that I had asked publicaly...

This will be going to a family member,
that I really don't know all that well.
I "assume" that she celebrates Christmas
and that she will appreciate it.

*grin*

And, keep in mind that I still want to make
a SECOND one, like this, okay?

Here's the question, that I had asked....

Do I take TONS of hours to hand quilt this?
Do I sew "in the ditch", on my trusty
sewing machine and then,
possibly hand quilt, here and there?
Or, do I wait till I get a chance to "long arm quilt" this?

Well, since my friend has a long arm machine
and we're "supposed" to practice on it,
I figured that I'd put it away, in a bag,
with the batting and the back to it,
till we get together, to
"long arm quilt" it.

*grin*

Will keep you all up to date,
once it's COMPLETELY ready!

Oh Rosa....beautiful Sparkling Jane! The applique looks great. I would probably quilt it the way that was the fastest and I was the best at, which would be my sewing machine for me. I sure wouldn't handquilt it and then give it away though.

No I would not handquilt it and then give it to a person you don't know all that well....
Sparkling Jane is beautiful. I just love these Dear Jane blocks.
