More show-n-tell by the Knotty Girls Stitching Bee at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above, Barb David shows us her latest finish.  Calendula Patterdrip’s Cottage is from Crabapple Hill.  Isn’t it beautiful!  Barb does such fantastic work and is one of those people I admire because she finishes her projects!
This is a close-up of the top portion of the quilt.  I don't think this was the area she was talking about, but I did hear her say that one area took her one and a half hours to copy the design onto the fabric!
This is a close up of one section in the lower part of the quilt.  I’m sorry about the color, but I darkened the picture so you could see the saying.  Don’t you just love it!

LeedleDeedle Quilts has a nice tutorial for a string X block that is 12 inches finished.
Stay calm! Stay kind! Stay Positive!

I have always loved that pattern and have thought about making it several times. That whole finishing thing is something to be admired! Very well done.

That is an AMAZING quilt. I might get as far as tracing it, but doubt I'd ever finish! What a lot of work but it is beautiful!

Barb said...

WOW!! That quit is amazing!

Sue said...

Oh my! That is gorgeous and all that work! I give her big kudos for finishing this!
