I am hand quilting a baby quilt for my daughter- in- loves sister. The shower is Saturday. I've got a busy week ahead of me. Too bad work gets in my way of being creative. I only have maybe a third of it done. I have to be finished Friday so I can get it washed and wrapped. I'm using big fun stitches. And thinking I might should have used the machine to get it finished quicker. ;-). Plus my fingers are sore. Lol
Hope she likes it.

The quilting is complete and the binding and sleeve are in place. As soon as my DH gets my quilt hanger with shelf hung on the wall, I can hang my Peony wall hanging. I think he just has to put on a final coat of something or other and it will be ready to hang. Unfortunately, he had to go to Fort Smith this morning so I guess that means I'll have to wait patiently for his return. This finished about 49" X 49".
I've started another mini-quilt top but still need to quilt the last one - a Radiant Star. Here's my "Prairie Moon & Star" work in progress. Each block will have a moon & star in the center. I've cut the background pieces 6" so they will fit in my small embroidery hoop while I sew the blanket stitch around the moon & star which is fused in place. I will probably finish the blocks at 2 1/2" to 2 3/4" square - then I'll add sashing strips. Will plan a border (or not) later.
I'm looking forward to getting back with the group tomorrow night - hated to miss last week. I hope to see some Radiant Star tops near completion or completed!
