Happy Easter and Finally!

First - Happy Easter, everyone! We had the family here today, and had a great time. The DGC were so cute and had so much fun.

Now, drum roll, please! I finally got it done! The quilting and binding seemed to go on for miles! I am, of course, speaking of my Thimbleberries Lakeside BOM from 2008. I increased the size of it to be king-sized. It isn't perfect, but I am quite pleased with it, and it looks nice on our bed. I need to get some more fabric and make pillow cases to match.

The rest of the pictures show a bit of the quilting that I did. I have a Janome 1600P that I put on two large tables for quilting.

I haven't posted since I went to my retreat. It was right on the beach. We had such a nice view, and besides sewing a lot, we went and walked on the beach. The weather was just perfect. One of our friends was ill and couldn't go, so we made this signature wallhanging for her. We gave it to her yesterday and she was so pleased to receive it.


  1. The T'berries quilt is beautiful. What an accomplishment. Love all the other pieces as well, your quilting is so nice. I am totally impressed!

  2. What a beautiful quilt and your quilting really makes it. What happened to your Juki and when did you get the Janome?

  3. Oh Donna the pics of the ocean just makes my heart skip. What a wonderful time you must have had.
    And of course you already know I love your quilting!

  4. I love your quilt, it looks so warm and soft. Congratulation on having a finish.

  5. I love Thimbleberries and truly love the did an awesome job...I am drooling all over myself right now.

  6. Wow! The Lakeside quilt is lovely! And you enlarged it? I thought it was already huge! My dear friend makes the Thimbleberries quilts every year.

    It looks really great on the bed.

    Thanks for your warm thoughts.
