Yes. my guilty pleasure is quilting

Rule or Drool

Rule or Drool is finally done.  The pattern is from “The Quiltery” in Australia and the material that I used is Moda Marbles with Minky for the backing.  I do love Minky and will use it on the majority of my quilts from now on.  This quilt took me about a year to make.  A lot of it was fear.  It was my first applique so that took me a while and then when I started, I loved it.  The next hurdle for me was the satin stitching around each piece.  Again, that took me a while to get up the nerve to start and then when I got the hang of it, I really enjoyed doing it.  Then came the quilting.  Now that was challenging for me.  I guess it too, just takes a lot of practice.  Here is the happy recipient of the quilt, our beautiful, talented, amazing grandbaby. (Yes, we love her and are very proud of her….can you tell??)
