Patriotic Carpenter's Star

We've been celebrating!


I managed to quilt one of my own quilt tops the other day, just in time for the 4th of July!  That in itself is cause for celebration.


A Carpenter's Star lap quilt, 60" x 60" made by Deonn Stott
featuring Parade on Main fabric designed by Samantha Walker for Riley Blake Designs
I had 20 quilt tops when I bought my first longarm machine.  That was in 2005.  There are still about  20 quilt tops waiting for the quilter (me), but they are not the same quilt tops I started with!  Has this happened to you?  Somehow, if I quilt one, another one (or two, or more) takes its place!  Don't know how this happens, lol!

And usually my machines are too busy to slide in one of my own, but it quilted out quickly using Wildflower Quilting's free Star Spangled design on my Statler.




But here's the real star!  My darling little grandbaby, who was way more interested in eating the flag than waving it.  


Everything she does is delightful.  


Grandbabies are the best!  Happy 4th of July to us!
