and then...

looooong ago i posted about a quilt flimsy made with
Wintergraphix 2 by Jason Yenter fabric ... waaaaay back here ... anywho ... i wanted to quilt snowflakes all over it ... three years later i finally figured out that i'm just not up to it ... so ... a couple of months ago i sent it off to Liz the Longarm Quilting Wizard ... she worked her magick on it and sent it back ... i trimmed it and did the machine sewing for the binding ... 
and then...

and then...

 and then i decided it was just too doggone hot to hand sew the binding on a quilt and i put all of it away again... 

and then we had one cool day a month or so ago and i sewed down the binding ... so i actually have a finish...

World, meet Polaris...
i am the holder, not the photographer ... Auntia is the photographer and she wasn't terribly interested in taking the picture cuz she was missing Swift Justice ... go figure

the quilting is lovely, but you probably can't see it ... the pattern is Fireworks! by the famous Kim of  Kim's Big Quilting Adventure ... she writes a swell pattern, lemmetellya!
so swell, in fact, that i am gonna make another quilt someday with the same pattern but different fabric ...

and then...

and then i'll tell you all about it...

That quilt was worth waiting for, it's amazing, I just love it. My favorite thing is the border, those stars around that inner border, very clever, I may need to "borrow" that idea sometime. Auntia did a great job taking the picture, are those cherry poptarts I see, we're a blueberry family.
Are you ready for some football? I am! I've started memorizing all the Denver players numbers. I've got one down pat, number 18!
