March 1st - #59

My final quilt that is at Carol's house. This was one of the very first quilting classes I took at the Calico Cat in Auburn. So it must have been about 12 years ago! Even then, florals were my theme of choice. I remember I had my strips hanging on a laundry rack next to me, so I could pick them to make my nine patch blocks. Looking closely, my points are AWFUL! But at least I didn't let that stop me from finishing this! Which I did about 3 years ago. It was my attempt on a long arm machine! I figured it was a good one to practice on. I liked doing the quilting, I just don't much like the loading onto the machine part. So many pins! Interesting to look back at these older quilts and see that they all have the basic finish. A stopper and a border. Yawn.........
