I just can't believe it is the same quilt top I mailed out to Lynn not that long ago. Lynn graciously offered to quilt my CC so I am a very lucky gal! I am even more thrilled because I received Lynn's email with these wonderful pictures just yesterday, on the eve of our November Country Charmer QAL update. What perfect timing!
Lynn has written a great post about my CC preview HERE and has shown a few pics. But, like the sweetie she is, she sent me the pics first so I could post my CC reveal here. Of course, she also hinted that the quilt may stay in California and not make its way to me here in Nova Scotia. Gulp...
As for the quilting, I did say "No pressure, Lynn", " Take your time, Lynn", "No hurry, Lynn", honest, I did! But lookeee here...she just quilted and quilted and quilted...
Can you see the detail in the quilting? It actually hides all my mis-matched seams and cut-off tips. Those feathers are exquisite and that cross-hatching is the perfect frame for each block. As for that teeny, tiny stippling around each star, unbelievable!
I can't wait to actually touch the quilt and to feel those stitches bringing the quilt to life. I love what I see on the front of the quilt, but what a bonus it was for me to see the back. This is quilt art!
Thank you, Lynn, from the bottom of my heart. You have taken my quilt to a new level with your fabulous quilting. I'm really looking forward to seeing it in person and to attaching the binding and label to finish it off.
Thank you, Quilt Sue, for designing our CC button. It is so neat to see that button pop up on my dashboard. It was especially exciting to read about Quilt Sue's visit to Lovely Lynn's last month. The world becomes pretty tiny at times!
Thanks to all who joined in for the Country Charmer Quilt Along. It has been a magnificent ride from the start to the finish. We've seen some glorious quilts evolve since we started in January. Many of you have finished your quilts and shared them with us, while some of you may still be in the midst of putting those beauties together. I'll keep the Flickr page active HERE, so please add your finished quilt to the page at any time. Gail, this means you...giggle...
If you have blogged about your CC quilt or its progress, please link up below. I never tire of seeing the quilts people make with Lynn's CC pattern and I have a feeling you agree with me too!
It's a great day for quilting!
