Quilts In Progress

 My quilt "Nebula" is almost completed

Here is a close up picture of the quilting in "Nebula".


 Here I am saftey pin basting a quilt I finished piecing of Terry's (husband) great, great aunt.  The pieces of this quilt were cut out and placed in a box and later sold at a family auction.  Terry's cousin bought the box of pieces and years latter saw she would never finish the quilt.   She gave it to us hoping some day it would get finished. Now it is pieced and I am ready to hand quilt it.

I need a name for this quilt that I just put the binding on.
  Any suggestions?

  22. My mother has a Dresden Plate quilt that was pieced by her grandmother. Her grandmother wasn't able to do the quilting on it before she passed away, so when my mom inherited the top, she had it quilted. Mom was never much for sewing, even though she comes from a family of sew-ers. She claims that the quilting gene skipped a few generations and ended up with me!

  52. Your quilts are beautiful and the stitching on Nebula is fantastic. All of the little diamond shapes in the stars remind me of lights, so I think Starlite might be a good name.
