Niki's Spirit-At Last!

I am back home in Toronto and all the pressure is off to work on wedding stuff. Now, it is my turn to play and have some fun with fabric and play is what I will be doing over the next few days. I need a fix! In the meantime, there is lots to show you about the wedding and that will come in installments (after all, I do need to find something to write about for you).

First though, I do have to say many thanks for all the compliments that I received for my Blue Buds quilt. Golly, I am still blushing! :o) Just so you know, I purposely shot that photo at an angle so that you could not see my mistakes. Mind you, a young niece visited when this quilt was hanging up and she very quickly pointed out the error of my ways. So there, they are definitely there!


At last, this quilt is finished and it has been delivered to the bride and groom.

The bride has been peeking at my blog in hopes of seeing their finished quilt, but I only gave her (and you) bits and pieces of their quilt.

Here is a close-up of the quilting. When I look at this pattern, it reminds me of gingerbread trim on houses.

How do you think I did on this one? My next post will show you that it wasn’t so pretty on my ‘before’ shot. So, come back and visit to see what I am writing about.
Have a nice day!
