Here is my Strings of Diamonds quilt! This was a quilt kit that Jim had bought me for Christmas, a year ago. I made the quilt top last January/February, but then put it away, thinking I would hand-quilt it. Well, that never happened, so last month when I was going thru my UFOs, I decided to go ahead and have it machine-quilted by a gal thru the local quilt shop. She does not do custom quilting, so it is an all-over design, but I like the effect. I picked it up yesterday and put the binding on right away, glad to have this off the UFO list. I love this quilt! :o) This is the first time that I have used a sheet for the back of a quilt - I picked this sheet up at the thrift shop, last summer, I think. I think it goes perfectly with the vintage feel of the quilt!
Sandie over at Crazy 'Bout Quilts is making a vintage sheet quilt, and I am sending her the pieces I had left of this sheet - it was much bigger than my finished quilt. Go check out what she is making - it is really lovely!
Jimmy went to his pre-school screening last Monday, as long as there is state funding, he will be heading to pre-school this fall, Pre-K3, it is called. I think it will be good for him, as we don't have anyone his age that he plays with, so sometimes I think he thinks that he is 12 years old, like the trio... :o)
Thanks for visiting! I hope everyone has a great Sunday!
