Flimsies...

 Hi Everyone...this is a long overdue quilt, one I am so pleased to get to this stage.  It has been done for a while, but I did not show it here...I am hand quilting this one.  It is a signature quilt.  I wanted something different, something kind of original...so this is what I came up with.
The whole thing!  I am so grateful to get it to this stage!



If you don't hear from me for a while, don't worry...I am working a long stretch and also need to clean, clean, clean!!  You know how it goes...it is hard to concentrate on cleaning, when next week, it just needs to be done all over again...Quilts stay done, once they are done!!!



Have a great day, all!!!

Is that a wedding quilt? Did you have the whole top made before it was signed? It is such a neat setting!

Julie,
What a great quilt! It is really stunning.

I love this design, I love blocks on point, but that the signatures are straight so easy to read. The colour combination is very striking. Good luck with the cleaning...mine needs doing but the sewing machine is calling me!

What a great design with these blocks!
Re: cleaning...I only clean when my feet stick to the floor! LOL! I wish I liked cleaning more, but I don't, so that's life!

Fantastic design. I really like the way you framed these and set them on point. Jazzy!

Cleaning is like the ocean's tide, neverending.

Is this a special gift for someone?

The red strips make this quilt a star! Wow, it's beautiful

Want to come clean at my house for a week? I'm sure we can work out a nice swap - cleaning for fabric. ;oD

I like signature quilts and you've really made something special of this one. Like the zigzagborder.

I love all your quilts, they are beautiful. It's my first time posting a blog. I have posted items I have made and a hand made quilt that's over a hundred years old.

Wonderful setting! I may borrow the idea for a siggie quilt I am dreaming up for a co-worker.
