Circle quilt

There's no one home to hold up my new quilt for a picture so the clothes line held it. The windmill shadows are not part of the quilt. The boys thot it was stunning when I turned it so they could see the front! This is my second attempt at machine quilting--I'm getting better, but my machine likes to act up and the tension gets messed up and there is a lot of ripping out and re-sewing. I really like this quilt and don't know if I'll be able to part with it.

Give your self permission to snuggle in front of the fireplace and enjoy the hard work with you wrapped in the quilt!! I love the shadow on it, and your "boys" taking a look see! You did an amazing job.

Hi Barb, Jodi sent me over to take a look at your circle quilt and I'm so glad she did! It really is so cute! You did a great job with every aspect of it. Did you give it to someone as a gift?
