First I want to show you an awesome discovery.
These beautiful Irises
I have never seen them in our yard and I think I know why.....when they were in our yard my husband would mow them down but....he recently put up a new fence and it just so happens that these irises are right in the corner of the fence where it is hard for him to get to...Oh what a lovely discovery.
This quilt top was made in Amerika Samoa, the fabric is from one of the Samoan shops, used the Wedge ruler. I didn't quilt it because for one, I wanted to make it bigger but didn't have enough fabric, for two, I didn't know how to quilt it and I wanted to do some fancy quilting.
Sooooooooooooo fast forward to now. A few months ago I sandwiched it and just kept thinking on how to quilt it. The other day I thought who cares, if I was to do some detailed quilting it would take me years so I just did a meandering. The next photo will tell you I made a great decision

I designed this quilt many moons ago, let's say seven or eight years ago. It is on the Accuquilt site. I used the small tumbler die and tulip die.
That being said, when I submitted the pattern I just quilted in the ditch.
I never felt this quilt was truly finished so about 3 years ago I decided to start quilting it.
I earmarked this for someone very special to me, so I have been working off and on. Do I need to tell you that I am still working on it.
Now......I told myself this week that I was going to get HER done!!
I went through a spool of thread, then my new one of the same kind kept splitting and skipping so I went on line and ordered me a different brand. So it sits.
I have to be honest with you, I have a short attention span. I have to have the TV going to keep me going.
So...................... this is why I prefer to just do a meandering or some other simple design because the quilt would never get finished.

This is the joint project Jeanette from Inchworm Fabrics and I are doing.
I purchased this pattern on Connecting Threads, it is a pdf. I purchased two, one for myself and one for my sister. I just felt it is only fair to the designer to buy two even tho my sister can just print off mine.
