FOLK ART TRIBUTE QUILT TOP COMPLETE

I finished the "Folk Art Tribute" quilt top yesterday evening.  It is about 61 inches by 72 inches.  I managed to get it up on the design wall this morning for a picture.
The applique involves nice large pieces and is fairly easy applique.  Enjoyable stitching.  The pattern is by Dawn Heese of Linen Closet Quilts.

You will find me in my sewing room today.  Straightening up and putting things away.  I have so many pieces and parts laying out that I am forgetting what goes to what.  Enjoy your day.
Karen

What a lovely finish. I always like to tidy my sewing room after finishing a project. To much clutter seems to hold back my creative spirit.
