Katy's Bed Quilt

Last May I posted an EQ7 drawing of a bed quilt for my daughter Katy. I finished it in time to give it to her when she was home for Christmas.

Click on the quilt to see it larger. It is huge, 93" x 102"! It took forever to quilt, but I am pleased with the results. I quilted it on my Bernina 1030. If you scroll down you can compare it to the EQ7 image.

Next up, I am scanning all my old family photos. This will be a big job, but it's fun.

Here I am at my first birthday with my sister Mary Ellen. She's a quilter too and just won the Best Hand Workmanship prize for her quilt Carmen's Garden. You can see it here.

Till next time......Happy Stitching



  1. I was wondering how it turned out. Beautiful!

  2. Love your daughter's quilt. Stars always make a great quilt, and your quilting is gorgeous. I have a portable scanner that is pretty easy to use. I bought it when I got back into genealogy and would like to scan in my old photos, too. Like you it would take awhile, but I have photos of quilt retreats and photos from our other house that would be nice to have on disk.

  3. A very beautiful Christmas present for your daughter. I'm sure she was amazed when she saw it. It's a work done not only by hands, but also by heart and with the warmest feelings of a mom.
