Sept 25, the top is done!!

I finally had time to finish this Fire Island Hosta  top, and daughter is delighted with the way it looks. 


Hubby and I were too short to hold it up completely off the floor. It’s 100″by 100″ now I have something to quilt on this winter!

I also have these lovely blocks that I had tucked away, I had purchased them unfinished. I was going to finish them but daughter picked up a block, started working on it ,…she ended up finishing the rest of the blocks. She now loves doing embroidery by hand.

Now off to decide how I want to show off these older vintage stamped blocks by Jay Dee of St Louis ,Missouri….today the company is known as Jack Dempsey .

    That quilt is amazing! What a gorgeous design. I like the sweet simplicity of the cross stitch blocks, too–how neat that your daughter got interested. I basted a quilt top yesterday so I would have something to quilt this winter, too!
