| Still life with quilt, x 10 »
Dear Quilty Friends (you know who you are),
For years I have been following your blogs.
Admiring your work. Often envying it.
Thinking I'd like to do that sometime. Especially with all that vintage fabric I've tucked away. But wondering where you ever found the time.
But then I had an epiphany. As in: sometimes you just make the time.
So I did.
And now my quilt top is finished!
(The other half, more or less.)
You'll be there with advice on the quilting part, right?
Thanks, Quilty Friends.

Great Job! How do you want to quilt it? And you are right, you do make the time. I tend to make the time my priority!

LOVE it! I'll give you lots of quilting advice!

LOL - my advise on the quilting part - find a friend with a long arm that can do it for you - that's just the lazy in me talking...

I am not one of those friends that falls in the quilty category for help, but you certainly did a magnificent job on the top!

Gorgeous, drooling over all those fabrics. Enjoy the quilting bit (piecing is my fave).

I'm so glad you've taken the time to do this for yourself! Fantastic fabrics.

So beautiful! I am awestruck by the block with the red polka dots and the red and aqua flowers. Show stopping combination!

Quilting is in the air, I think! What a thrill to have created such pretty place to see so many of your feedsack prints. Really beautiful!!
I'll just hover in the background to see what advice you receive since I have none to offer due to extreme lack of quilting experience. (other than admiring them)

You must be very proud of yourself, because this quilt is gorgeous! I love the way you combined the prints, and it's just so exciting to see one of my blog friends become a quilter (especially a quilter who enjoys using vintage fabrics). Well done!

It looks fabulous! Love the bowtie blocks!

So very cute! The fabrics are wonderful, and very nice piecing. I might just quilt it simply to showcase the fabrics- maybe stitch-in-the-ditch between the blocks, with a single diagonal line though the middles of all of the bows? How ever you do it, it will be great! I hope you post pics when it all done.
