Postage Stamp Quilt

 Today I can share with you the Postage Stamp Quilt I quilted for Darlene aka Quilting Nana.  She wanted to be surprised and NO peeks.  Please go on over and visit her blog and tell her I sent you.
 The backing was a dark red color and when I popped down underneath the machine to look up I thought this was just too cool not to share.
This is called semi-custom quilting because of that inner flange border.  I hope you can kind of see it popped up some in the photo.  The center design is one of my favorites that mimic the fabric line.  It's called, "Special Roses."  You will see the whole quilt at Darlene's blog.

Thanks again Darlene for choosing me as your quilter to "frost" your quilt.  It's a beauty!

I just love your quilting and that is a beautiful quilt to design around. My machine is ready to pick up, so now i have to finish the baby quilt, tempted to do lines in the small squares and something in the larger ones? She is being induced, so he is coming monday.

I love the view from down under, Mary, with the light shining through the thread holes.
