It's a Mystery

On Tuesday of this week the Holy  Name Quilters put the last stitch in my mystery quilt , a design by Darlene of Quilts by Darlene . This was a free BOM last year and I enjoyed every stitch and had decided I would like this one hand quilted so put my name on the long list at Holy Name and it was started in March . I had the opportunity to work just a couple of weeks on the quilt when I fell and broke my wrist so the girls continued on and did a fabulous job .

I love it and I think the fact this has alpaca wool for the batting will make this extra warm , you can check out this post to see the batting   http://sheilasquiltworld.blogspot.ca/2014/03/its-on.html   . Thanks girls for such a fantastic job , here is a closer look at the quilting
On Tuesday I should be getting this darn cast off and I pray I will soon be back with the girls quilting my Tuesdays away in sheer bliss :-)
 Thanks for stopping by and have a great day .
 hugs Sheila

  4. Probably some physical therapy will be needed, too. The quilt looks great. Nothing like a hand-quilted quilt.

  14. Wonderful! Lucky you to have your mystery quilt all finished and on the bed. It was a really fun quilt-along. Don't know when mine will ever be ready for the bed. I want to handquilt it so that means a looong time. Hurry up Tuesday! See, the last two weeks just flew by!

  15. Wow, what an awesome quilt! Alpaca batting would be a great choice as it can be so soft and incredibly warm. Congrats on getting your cast off. I bet you are so excited about that!

  20. It looks wonderful, Sheila. You did Darlene proud! Don't you just love wool batting?

    This is the inspiration I need to finish mine. I'm working on the French braid borders whenever I can fit them in.

    Thanks so much for sharing.
