Crossing Off a Flimsey

Finished quilting this today! This is called Lucky Stars by Atkinson Designs (of Yellow Brick Road fame) and it's made with Ella's Linen Closet by Blackbird Designs/Moda.

I made the binding when I finished piecing this but I need to dig a little in my sewing room. Hopefully, I won't have to dig too deep! LOL

Again, thanks for popping in - you know I love it when you do.

In Friendship!

Another gorgeous quilt! I've got that tower upstairs - it's on my to-use-up list before year-end.

I'm a sucker for feather quilting. That's beautiful!

Yvonne said...

Dear Darlene,
I think you should ignore all those whiney ladies begging for your gorgeous quilt but most especially that Vicky lady....what's up with her....triple dog dibbies. Did she think that would really work?????
Just let them all know it's on it's way to my house so they won't have to whine anymore....:)
