Road to Heaven

I have one more finish and I'm feeling good. It's a Christmas present and has started it's journey to the new owner. This is one more mystery from Cynthie at Iowastarquilts named Road to Heaven and I added a 2" border to make it a bit bigger.

It was dark when I finished sewing down the binding with help from my mom who came for a visit and as she was leaving the next morning while it would still be dark and taking it with her I took a photo with all the lights on in my bedroom. It was not enough, lol.

I don't have the patience to sit and draw patterns on paper so I usually just jump right in and quilt on my machine. I'm getting better at some patterns and for this quilt I chose flowers, leafs and something that turned out to be sort of feathers. I think. At least sometimes. Click on the photos to enlarge them if you want to see more details.

It's faaar from perfect, but I see progress and I'm content. And that is a good feeling.

I'll tell you after Christmas who's the new owner.



  1. Oh, I like it! I think you did a great job and your quilting is looking very nice. Each time does get a little easier, don't you think?

  2. A beautiful quilt! I guess the person who gets it will be very happy.
    Have a nice weekend!

  3. I love the quilting you did - looks fabulous! If only I had the "courage" to begin... without any practice at all how good do think I can get??? One of these days. Wished you lived closer to stand behine me... do you have to maneuver the quilt all around for the circles and designs. Seems very cumbersome?
