Jenna's quilt

I'm so glad.  I have managed to sew together Jenna's quilt top (of course it will need a lot of quilting)!  This in spite of my being under the weather this week with allergies and other health stuff--you don't want to know about it.  Sometimes the cure is worse than the disease, as it seems the doctor thinks that I'm allergic to one or more of my prescribed medicines.  Anyhow, I did some hand embroidery on the appliques and that does not show up in this photo.  I guess I ought to take more close-up pictures of that.  So, now on to working on my third little granddaughter's quilt--her name is Sabrina.  As you can tell if you've been reading my blog here, every quilt has the girl's name on it, but every quilt is otherwise very different. Today is July Fourth, and I want to wish everyone a Glorious Fourth!

Hi Roz, Your quilt for Jenna is really cute. To me it seems like a cross between prim and modern. I'm sure she will love it. You did a great job. I would love to see some closeups of your embroidery on it. Aren't grandchildren the best? Have a good evening. Winona

Jenna's quilt is absolutely wonderful! I love the star blocks, and your embroidered applique blocks are charming. I generally aovid applique but your technique for embroidering them first makes it a little more tempting.
