No pain, no gain

No pain, no gain

As a PT,  I used to say that all the time: no pain, no gain.  But this is the first time I’ve said it as a result of quilting.  Holding that ruler steady while doing all the back and forth matchstick quilting, for hours…yea, my left arm hurts.  But who cares. I looove how this came out. It seems so elegant.  Which is what I was hoping for.

This was pieced by my Angel Fire friend, Jan.  She went with wool batting – so perfect.  So Fine #50 thread, except for the gold metallic thread on the flying friends. 


I’d be no where without the handiest rulers from Linda Hrcka at

That’s the last customer quilt for while. Next up….a week with my little Ruby Lou!!!!!  So psyched!!  She’ll be turning one in just a few weeks. 

Thanks for looking!
