Aunt Millie or The Longest Quilt I’ve ever made

It seems like forever ago that I started my Aunt Millie’s quilt, you know that pattern by those most wonderful Piece o Cake Ladies?  My idea was to see what colors went with brown…to exercise my color muscles.

It was a great applique project that I just loved, and almost everyone in our little group was doing it too, which made it extra fun, to see the progress, to see how different they all are, etc.

So I finished mine and for a whole host of reasons, it took 2-1/2 years to get it machine quilted.  But finally in December, the most talented and wonderful, Margaret Gunn quilted it for me and oh my goodness, what a beautiful job she did on it.

This one was at the Quilt Fest this weekend, and it warmed my heart to watch people come over and admire it, and lean in close to see Margaret’s work, and mine too…


here….I’ll let you lean in close…


this quilt was certainly a journey, in many ways…..but soooo worth the trip!!

hugs and stitches!
