I had set my first goal for April 1st to being done.  I'm close as of last night I finished the binding and put on the sleeve so I could see how it hangs.  It took me 4 weeks to do the blocks then took 3 weeks off for a trip then another 4 weeks to do the borders.  I have used all of a 1000 yard thread spool and have lots more to do.  I left something to do on each block, (like top stitching on top of the birds) but have completely finished the borders.


  1. It is wonderful! I love your background fabrics.

  2. Wow that's a LOT of quilting in a few short weeks!! It looks amazing!

  3. It is absolutely gorgeous, and all done in so short time.

  4. Your quilt is beautiful! What did you use for a background fabric? Is it plain and off-white? I also love the quilting stitches. Will have to file your photo away to remember when I begin mine. All of these quilts just love lovely. Quilting is such an artwork.

    1. Thanks I used over 20 different reproduction shirtings.

  5. Gorgeous! Amazing! Fabulous! I could go on and on! What an inspiration! You rock! XO

  6. Looking wonderful Julee. Well done!Absolutely gorgeous!
