Ready for Quilting!

Thank goodness! This 'little treasure' has caused me a bit of anxiety - I guess it is trying to make a dolly quilt to please somebody else - it still looks 'very Lurline', to me! It is a warm, dull day here today - a chance of rain, I hope! Consequently, the background to this pic is pavers out the front in the daylight - a bit of a change from our usual bright, summer sunshine!
I'm a bit over this 'little treasure', so I think I will leave the quilting until later in the week. I have plenty to do to keep me busy, maybe too much and that is part of the problem! I will say, I love the Kaffe Fassett for Rowan fabric that I have used for the border - such beautiful quality!

I'm looking forward to having my sewing machine serviced - poor little girl seems a bit sluggish! Maybe I will be able to organize to have it done in a week or two!
If you would like to enter a Giveaway of 30 fat-quarters - pop over and visit Thearica of Pig Tales and Quilts - very, very generous and oh, to be so lucky - please tell her I sent you!
Hope your Easter has been safe and happy!

Hi Lurline, Hope you have had a wonderful Easter weekend too. The quilt is so colorful and beautiful. I hope you get the rain you are wishing for. We had a terrible storm on Friday night with rain/thunder/strong wind but no real damage. Easter Sunday has been warm, sunny with bright blue skies.

Even if it looks "Lurline" what does it matter? She does get a dolly quilt form you doesn't she. This will remind her of you. And I love it a lot!

It is always harder to make something for someone else and get it just right for them.
