Shine


"Shine" is quilted, bound and DONE!  This was my first quilt for the Lib Amish Get Together.

I can't belive it's taken me a year to get this done. I just couldn't decide how I wanted to quilt this. I finally took my inspiration from antique Amish quilts (should be a no-brainer, right?) and machine-quilted triple diagonal lines. Free-hand, of course. I was liberated enough to use my sewing machine, or it would be a realllllly loooong time before this got finished . . . hee hee!


I didn't measure anything, and I didn't stress about it. It only took me a few hours to get this done, once I got going.



 
I really like this quilt.  I think it finally came together just right.

I love it. You are right, quit agonizing and start doing, it's amazing how things get done. I love the tirple lines. I'm still not finished mine, I got sidetracked on another hand quilting project.
