Coming Home







































Hi Friends!  I'm still stitching away on custom quilt orders.  I got to work on one of my projects yesterday, a graduation gift for a friend of Maddie's.  I finished the top yesterday.  The pattern is "Coming Home" from the book, Simplify by Camille Roskelley.  I have made this quilt before.  It is a simple pattern that gives big results.  I added more blocks and wider borders to make the quilt throw size, a 54" square.  Today I hope to get it pinned for hand quilting.  Hope you are having a good day, the sun is shining brightly here!


With joy,
