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. 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.

  2. 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.
