Blue and White Floral Sisters' Choice Star Lap Crib Throw HandQuilted Applique Quilt

I recently completed a lovely blue and white sisters' choice star wall, crib, lap, throw sized quilt and wanted to share it.
This quilt is for sale in my Etsy shop. Click on the first photo to be taken there.

I am including a pre-binding photo; as well as photos after completion.

The somewhat fantasy flowers on the border were hand appliqued. I embroidered the leaves.

I am so proud of it. It was totally handquilted by me, also. Doing the 2 inch squares were tedious, but the soothing applique made up for that.

You will notice the extended tab on the back for wallhanging if desired.

The last photo was taken BEFORE the binding was added.

Hello I'm Edna. I love to sew, applique, knit, crochet and paint fabric. If there was just only more time in a day. The feel of fabric, and yarn is one of the most pleasing touches on earth. I love to do olde fashioned needleturn applique. I often drool over appliqued projects made by others. The color combinations and the unique designs sends my mind on a wonderful experience.

I would be happy if society would return to the good olde days. (Return to nature) I remember my grannys' old foot rocking sewing machine, picking fresh fruits from our trees, and even feeding the chicken, goats, etc. Those were the good olde days. Please do enjoy my modern creations. Good day.
