LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL...

Indeed !

I purchased this wonderful pattern from Helen Stubbings (see my sidebar)
and started it last July 2010...
Today, I can happily report that my quilt top is ready for handquilting

;>)


Some close-ups...




This quilt is very special to me.
I pieced and embroidered it in a particular moment of my life,
and the little sayings were very meaningful...
No need to say I enjoyed each and every stitch.
I just can't wait basting it, tomorrow evening.

And then... on to the handquilting, yeppppppeee !

THANKS for your lovely encouragements,
enjoy your sewing, my friends !
