Tessa's quilt is finished and a visit from our sister!

I finished up Tessa's quilt last week!  I love it and so does she!
 It's nice and big for a twin 70" x 90".

 A close-up of the quilting.  Once the tension was adjusted on my machine (although it still can't seem to keep the tension properly) I could finally free-motion.  It was a lot of fun doing this!
the back is a re-purposed cotton sateen sheet and feels great
 A very happy Tessa who's excited to be able to sleep under it now :)

These are for you, Alisa (and Mom and any other family who cares!)
It started like this....
then this happened...

and ended like this!
It feels so good to laugh!  It would be lovely if you were here too Alisa...but I'm looking forward to summer!!!

  3. Suzanne, it's just wonderful for a little girl. Your quilting is really sweet with the addition of the little flowers. You and your sister reminds me of me and mine. :)

  4. Suzanne, the quilt looks really, really good! The quilting is so cute.

  6. I have always loved log cabin quilts! Your choice of fabrics go so nicely together... And, sisters should always enjoy each other...

  8. Love the quilt, Suzanne! I love the flowers you quilted on it--I want to give quilting a try, but haven't built up the courage (and probably endurance) needed to tackle that!

  9. The quilt is lovely! I like the colors in it.:)
