It's done, it's done, it's done!!!

Another project is finished......done, done, done!!! I am so happy with this little wallhanging! It's a pattern by Pat Sloan and I printed it out long ago and finally started it last spring. My goal was to finish it by the end of August. I'm a little off but not bad considering all that's been going on around here! One of the reasons that it took me longer to finish is because I decided to hand-quilt it instead of machine quilting it. I'm glad I did as I like the look of the hand-quilting as I do it better than machine work!

The quilt is called "StarBlooms". Years ago, I grew some Strawflowers in my garden, then dried them and used in wreaths and other arrangements. I had a "bumper crop that year". Tried to grow them several times since then and have had no luck. This design reminded me of those Strawflowers. The nice thing is that once this quilt is "grown" the flowers will never die! LOL! If you'd like to try this design, you can find it here....... PatSloanStarBlooms .

The finishing touches on "StarBlooms" were (or was? I need an editor) done while I was baking supper this evening. If you want to know what I made and read my tea post for this month, just pop over to TeaAndStitches and check it out!
It's only 10:00 p.m. The night is young so I think I will cut more Christmas Charm squares. :-)
Night all.....

It is really lovely Sandi. I know that you will enjoy those never dying flowers for a long time.

You are right, it is "were" as you are discussing "touches."

Enjoy your evening!
