Split Rail Fence Quilt is a Finished Object!!

I have to admit to being very skeptical when our DDIL kept encouraging me to quilt.  It has never been one of the things I have been good at…much less been able to hold my enthusiasm… so it was with a bit of trepidation that I undertook this project.  That is also why it is only 44 inches square.  But I have to admit that now with it complete, there were only a couple of times when I thought … oh boy.. no way… don’t want to pick it back up… huh uh… but they didn’t last long.. I think I just loved the colors and couldn’t let it be still for long…lol  So, what did I learn.. that trying to use what you have on hand is a good thing… but using colors and fabrics that you really like will usually mean the difference between just starting something and actually finishing it (for me, anyway).   Sooo… this is for you, Tomomi my sweet…

Thanks for pushing encouraging me to give this a try…

    I love the colors in this quilt, and the way you made it special with the hand embroidery. You should quilt more often. Bed quilts are daunting, but I can see youturning out exquisite pillows, runners, wallhangings that marry quilting and embroidery……
