This past week I finally finished my Dandelion Wishes quilt. I started it in April of 2008. Yes, thats a really long time to get a quilt finished.
The quilt and quilting itself didn't take long, it was the eight hand appliquéd flowers, stems, and leaves that took forever. They were all appliquéd on after the quilt was not only quilted but even bound.
I started this quilt and showed it last week, things happened pretty quickly on it.
And the top is finished. It will be going to the charity division of my quilt guild for their call for more masculine quilts. I just need to prep a binding for it. They will provide batting and a back and quilt and bind it.
I also started another guy quilt for the guild. I have been using up some of my bin scrap stash for these quilts. I have piles and piles of beige and cream fabrics so have found a way to deplete some of those piles.
Your quilts are gorgeous and will be great for a man. Beautiful.ReplyDelete

Pretty finishes, and a another pretty one on the way!ReplyDelete
Hi Donnalee! I'm so glad I saw your title over at Alycia's party. How fabulous that you finished both of these quilt tops and another in the works. Twelve years in the making . . . well, that has fermented just long enough. Woot woot! I would say you had a fabulously productive week, and here's to another one this week. ~smile~ RoseanneReplyDelete
Great finish! and that top came together so fast - thanks for linking up to Finished ( or not) friday!! its great to see you there again!!ReplyDelete
You are getting a lot finished and they are all wonderfulReplyDelete
Wonderful to be reminded that even after a quilt is finished, it can have hand work added to it!ReplyDelete
That's a great design with the crosses, certainly rather masculine.ReplyDelete
What lovely work you do! I really like your 'guy' quilt! It's very clean and masculine looking. Great job! :)ReplyDelete
I'm not sure which is my favorite here. Dandelion Wishes is so pretty but the beige, cream and blue quilt is going to be stunning. Thank you for linking up to Put your foot down.ReplyDelete
Congratulations! I bet it's such a relief to get Dandelion Wishes done. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.ReplyDelete
