I'm impressed that you do your own machine quilting. Almost all the quilters I know, and they call themselves quilters, send their tops out to be machine quilted. I was told "it isn't a quilt until it's quilted". So, technically they are "piecers" not quilters.Sorry, Marsha, my comment came off wrong, and you can't edit later. If I were a hand quilter and could quilt with a group, I'd be all for that; but being I do machine quilting it doesn't feel like "my quilt" sending it out, plus I don't have the extra funds for it.
you are very patient and skilled to do prairie points and that is going to look so awesome with that finish.
I do enjoy the piecing and color/fabric selection, sometime I have help and just buy a coordinated group, other times it's all me picking fabrics/colors.
My quilting is very basic, but it's all mine, I mostly straight-line stitch, but have occasionally tried free-motion, but don't have the patience for it.I'm impressed that you do your own machine quilting.

This is darling.I am finishing up a little cross stitch on linen for a new grand daughter. I'm waiting for some heart buttons to come in the mail to put on the corners. Do not know when I will be able to get it framed, due to the virus. It will need a custom frame.
I do enjoy cross stitch, but I cannot do it well any more. I made lots of mistakes. I took out about half of everything I put in. Sometimes because it is a custom pattern, and sometimes because I didn't count correctly. I keep saying I won't do it any more, but then I can't resist and a pattern interests me. The nice thing, my dil has no clue about hand work and won't notice any of the mistakes! I might put some extra design in the empty spaces; not sure what might go with the monkeys. I did some drawn thread for the ribbon.
That is a nice pattern! I've never seen it before.
