Batter Up!

Opening_9Finally, some quilty progress! I just finished piecing the top to a project I started last fall - the pattern is Opening Day by Carrie Nelson/Miss Rosie's Quilt Company, and it's made using Moda's Roman Holiday line of fabrics. I love the way this quilt top turned out. There were many pieces, but it came together perfectly, I had no problems at all with the construction, and I'm just thrilled with the results. A great pattern and a great group of fabrics.

  7. The quilt is gorgeous. You can't beat the Variable Star block. I've always loved it. And tell your daughter to keep up the good work. It's great to hear that a new generation is making quilts. (And she's so pretty too.)

  11. Jeez Lisa... I know it isn't a huge obstacle to overcome, but you're not supposed to make your quilt THAT much better than mine! You already know I love your Zuzu's Petals. This new one is absolutely gorgeous and I can see why you love it! And yours is perfect... one of the borders on mine is backwards. And, no, thanks to the magic of photo-editing, it doesn't show in the picture. And, see, I told you flying geese are a good thing! Congratulations on finishing your beautiful quilt. :)

  15. This reminds me so much of a starry one from Marsha McCloskey's book -- the one on Borders ... she might have done it with Judy Martin. Anyway, this looks so similar -- except I like yours better.
    Talented, you definitely are that L. :)
