Okay, I completed something today.  I used scraps from my first quilt to make a duplicate only mini for my craft room.  The big quilt is in the background and a spool of thread for size.

oops, I'm still new to posting pictures.  Hopefully here's the correct one.

Okay, I finally used up some fabric that has been sitting a while.  It was a clearance buy.  Actually, my 12 year old son made most of it because it was for his history project.  Hope that counts 'cause it came from my stash!  It turned out really cool and I only had to help with the cutting and binding (and of course telling him what to do).
It's a colonial flag wall hanging quilt.

Shots of the stars.
He only fused them on because he doesn't know how to do anything unless it's the last minute.  I think that now that he's brought it home from school, I might hand stitch around them.  Can't do it by machine 'cause I added a hanger to the back.
(Spool of thread in the pic for size)

Pic of the strips and his one line of quilting on the white.  Planned on more but remember, last minute!  I think it looks good anyway.

4  My Golden Flying Geese Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Dor on: February 14, 2009 02:56:03 PM
This is my lastest finished quilt.  I call it my golden flying geese quilt because it has flecks of gold in the fabric on the geese.

Here's a picture of the up close geese and my handquilting.  This is my first totally hand quilted quilt!  I'm really proud of it.

The thread that I used is a brightly colored variegated.

5  My first 3 REAL quilts in Quilting: Completed Projects by Dor on: January 04, 2009 08:55:30 AM
These are my first 3 quilt that I've made through a class at a local quilt shop.  I actually hand quilted the four patch centers on the pastel quilt.  That is a first for me.  I think my next one I will totally hand quilt.  I'm already working on a flying geese pattern.
