Sandy's Country Village

Don't you LOVE this quilt??  I do.   And I had a blast deciding how to quilt each area.  Sandy left it up to me, and that always makes it more fun for me.  I emailed her yesterday and asked if she wanted me to wait to post pics until after she saw it in person (tomorrow).  A girl after my own heart, she said no, post the pics.  I took so many pictures that I fell asleep last night in front of the computer while I was going through them LOL! I'm sharing 22 pics, so be prepared to spend a little time with Sandy's eye candy.  Clicking on each picture will let you see it more in detail.

The full quilt

Corner design from a ruler class with Handiquilter educator Debby Brown

Lots of different quilting for each row














The last row and the two borders

And some pics of the back

  2. Debbie, Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have tears in my eyes - tears of joy! I have never seen such amazing quilting - every row, every photo I say "that is my favorite" and then at the next photo I say "no, that is my favorite" and so on.....I think my absolute favorite is the little blue house with the quilted stars (for now!)

    I have been staring at these pictures for almost an hour - time to go to bed and dream about seeing it in person tomorrow night!

    You are amazingly talented Deb - a true artist.

  8. Wow Deb! That is so gorgeous! Sandy must be beside herself. I cannot wait to give you my scrappy quilt to have at it! The Civil War Tribute and Back to Nature are for you to quilt as well when finished.
