A couple finishes

It was raining this morning so while I was waiting to take photos, I worked on making and sewing on other bindings. Since the rain didn't stop, I took these photos over the railing in my kitchen. This HeartStrings top was pieced by Barbara in FL and quilted with Baptist Fans.

I got this binding stitched down this morning too. These blocks were made by the Quilting Queens, a local guild here in the Minneapolis area - I assembled and quilted it with freehand hearts. You can see I borrowed the sash border from Barbara's quilt although I used half blocks for mine.

Oh my goodness I am so glad I came by today to see these great quilts. Wow! I love a Baptist Fan quilting pattern, too. That captured my imagination.

Have a wonderful day, Mary! Your work always lifts me up. *karendianne./ Living Life at LeeHaven
