Last year I posted about this quilt....my Aunt Faye embroidered the blocks while she was caring for my grandmother, quite a few years ago. She gave me the blocks and asked me to set them into some kind of quilt, and I proceeded to procrastinate about it for a number of years. Well, my 2nd cousin (my aunt Faye's grandson) is getting married in two weeks, and the quilt is going to be a joint wedding gift to him from myself and my Aunt Faye. I have been quilting it on my friend Karen's gammill, and finished it today. Now I have two weeks to get the binding on and stitched down. Busy, busy, busy I will be!
I've had this quilt put together for quite some time now, EXCEPT for the borders! I don't know why, but sometimes I get that far on a project and then just get stalled before putting the borders on. Anyway, here's another one finished and ready to be quilted! I am planning to put this one on the machine and quilt it very soon...it is going to go in my yellow guest room, and I can't wait to see how sweet and "cottage-y" it makes the room look....

I have finally finished putting the last border on my Star BOTM, designed by Judy L. at Patchwork Times. Judy's directions are always so clear and concise, and a pleasure to follow. I had a fun time following along on this one - thank you Judy, for sharing your pattern!
