I can sing a rainbow . . .


I've been working on this quilt in the evenings, handquilting . . .

I've found it very relaxing and rewarding . . .

I started this quilt about 2 years ago, just joining up the scraps I had lying about, then it found it's way into the UFO pile.

I made another quilt very similar to this, and then started another just like it.  Somehow, this one always seemed like the "poor cousin"

Then one day, I "just decided" I would quilt it by hand, add that "loving feeling" and give it some life.

It sure has worked.  Each time I quilted and handled it, it bacame softer and softer.  The stitching gave it personality - and now I love it.

Tonight I'm putting on bright pink binding, to match the back.
I love QUILTS!

It's amazing what a difference some hand quilting can make......or is the love stitched into it?
