Singing His Praises BOM Quilt DONE!

Saturday was spent with my AZ quilty friends just sewing, visiting, laughing [a lot] and I was so happy to put the final stitch in the binding on this quilt.

It has been a few years in process, the blocks are PP and each block custom quilted

I am donating it to Living Faith Church to raise money for the Memorial Fund in memory of Matthew.

The red flange around the sashing sets off the blocks.

I blogged about it here so I won't repeat the details on the pattern but it is called "Singing His Praises".

This was the smallest block, these tiny pieces could never have been sewn without the benefit of paper piecing!
This is the last of my UFO's for the year and I am hoping that I will end 2010 without any incomplete quilts.
I am currently trying to finish little Emily's bed quilt but I have had tension issues the past few days and had to frog a fair sized area, I'm hoping it's ok now. I suspect it may have been the fault of the bobbin winder and with some adjustments to that I hope to be off and running, er, quilting!

This quilt...which is obviously such a labor of love for you...turned out perfect. I hope it raises a lot of money for the memorial fund. Will they be selling tickets? If so, maybe some of us who read your blog could buy some of them??

Beautiful. Did I see a little hand stitching on it also? Praying it brings in much money.

Beautiful! I love the narrow red inner border, and the geometry of the outer border. Congratulations on finishing it.

I just don't have the patience to quilt. I know how much hard work and time it takes to complete a project so I have nothing but complete respect and awe for anyone who produces the quality of work that you do in a quilt. Congratulations on finishing such a beautiful quilt. I hope that you do have a chance to stop by my little shop, if you make it up to Maine. I am open wed - sat. I am located just a few miles outside of Portland, our big city in Maine. Please let me know if you are in the area and need directions. I would love to meet a fellow blogger.
