Lone Star and Doggie quilt

Here is the last of those 20 heirloom family quilts that were given to me to quilt. This family has patiently waited for me to do all of these, and now they can have their party - where I understand the quilts will be distributed.

Sue brought me four of these cute doggie baby quilts - she needed one done up here quickly and the other three I have a bit more time to get to. I took a number of pictures so I could remember how I did this first one when I'm ready to load the other three!

I needed to stitch down some pieces that were adhered with wonder-under. My husband was kind enough to point out a place where my stitching had wobbled a little bit, if he had any idea how tricky it is to keep a straight and even stitch when going around something with a longarm machine!!

Notice the sun and cloud in the sky, and the shingles on the roof.

She just wanted some easy all-over treatment on the borders.


  1. Very nice. Are you sad to have reached the end of this project?

  2. The puppy one reminds me of Jess.

  3. Packrat - no not really, I was honored to be asked to do these, it is a very cool thing for this family, and interesting to work on tops that were pieced so long ago. But many of the tops were less than perfect and hard to lay flat and not get pleats and tucks. but all said and done, I'm glad I was asked to be part of this project.

  4. The lone star is beautifully quilted but that doggie quilt is adorable. I love it!
