April Finishes

After months of hard work we finally finished Skye's prayer quilt.  We did the great granny square with two wide borders.  Joeann embroidered bible references and names on the inner border.  Several of us each made a square.   We hand quilted the middle section as a group. I took it to church last Sunday to work on and even Skye stopped to work on her own quilt!
 I machine quilted the borders and binding so we could get it done.  I stippled (my version anyways) the inner border around the verses and names.

The outer border was just straight lines and the corners were small squares where the lines intersected.  I used khaki on the inner border and navy blue on the outer border.
The label faded a little after the washing, anyone know of a way to keep that from happening?  I had put it through my printer.

(I just really liked this picture with my shoe sticking out.  LOL)
I had Miss Debra model the quilt here.  :)
Of course Muffin had to sit on it after I pulled it out of the dryer.
I am just so glad it is finally finished!  We had a lot of good fellowship while we worked on this quilt and had a lot of prayer time praying for Skye as we quilted it for her.
A summary of my finishes for this month.  I did get a great granny square quilt quilted, I just swapped them out.  I did finish getting all of my strips for my scrappy trip around the world sewn together and sewn into tubes, ready for the next step.  I finished several more blocks also.
I also finished my sewing tool caddy!  I'll share more pictures about that tomorrow!
So, I met all of my goals for this month, yeah!
Have a great day, Missy
