Finished Steps and Stars with Dwirling

Ready to go into the dryer...

Dried and on top of my queen-sized bed below. I estimate this finished at about 68" x 86". You can really see the machine quilting in this one. It is the dwirling pattern from the Pajama Quilter DVD. It was very difficult on a DSM, but I think it would be easy on a long-arm. Too many starts and stops on a DSM for me.

Here it is in its entirety. I had thought about giving this away, but I want to enjoy just looking at it around the house for a while.

Test driving a new Parker house Roll recipe (for Thanksgiving) this AM. Not that all our rolls aren't Parker house rolls, but these are the genuine article.

Wow Joan - this quilt is mighty gorgeous!!! What a clever setting - have you decided if you are giving it away?? I might have to replicate this beauty.

Any luck with cleaning out your Janome underneath? I tried to answer you but you are "no reply". I cleaned mine out after about 4 years and was amazed at how LITTLE fuzz was under there -- and I sew a LOT -- although there we a few broken needle bits at the bottom.
