Shadow box Quilt
about 2 feet of the quilt  is hanging over on the
other side of the clothesline

Happy dance ... I have the quilt ready to give to our daughter.She can hardly wait to put it on her bed. She has painted her room to match the quilt fabrics,earlier this summer. Sew now we just have to make the roman blind.
It will be a busy weekend with helping with some of the baking for thanksgiving dinner. The label is made using a technique shown on stash manicure with in the last two weeks.I did wash the quilt with a product called retayne to set the colors of the batik fabrics. I did not want it to run on her later if she washes it.

sorry I could not get to turn around on the blog

I am happy with how it turned out. My quilting is not perfect and I still have a lot to learn. But I feel that I learn a little more each time I quilt a quilt. I have always been told practice, pratice, practice. And if you can quilt for 20  minutes a day for a month you will get very comfortable with it and then be able to do more amazing quilting on your quilts.
now to get on with a few other projects and a few alterations.
Sew that's all for now have a great day,
in stitches and hugs
