"Stop and...."

Hi There!

I finally have ANOTHER finished quilt to show you!  This one took, from start to finish, 7 to 8 years.  

Yes, it was an official UFO (Un-Finished Object)!!!

I hand embroidered these roses that 
were pre-stamped on a white background.

I then made alternating 9 patch blocks with fabric that my friend Elaine had sent me....  

Fabric by April Cornell - Victorian Decadence. 

Once again, many, MANY thanks Elaine!!!!

Gilbert then quilted a geometric pattern,
on these blocks.

He did a small meandering around the roses...

And here's the beauty of his work...

He used a red/burgundy thread,
to do some stippling
on the rose petals!

As this quilt will be in our local quilt show this month,
I sewed a sleeve on its back, as required.

And, this afternoon, I was able to take
a picture of my finished quilt!

The quilt name?

"Stop and...."

Hope you're able to enjoy your Labour Day Weekend!
