Quilting Saturday

Good afternoon, Today has been a wonderful quilty day. I put the boarders on my little wall quilt and started the hand quilting on it too. I also completed the last of my spinning star blocks for Quiltville's Orange Crush Mystery. My wonderful friend Dawn came over and she sewed on the Carolina Cross Roads that she started after I finished mine.

My first Tiger Lillies have arrived.
I am so excited that I got to do some hand stitching on the little quilt. Gee I have to name it so I'll stop referring to it as the little quilt. It is the smallest quilt I have ever made. It measures 24 x 24 inches.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful and safe weekend.

How about "Red Lily Gem"? May be too corny, but it is a little Gem, and Tiger lilies are also called
red lilies, and there is a lot of red in your quilt picture.
Just trying to tie your little quilt in with the first lily. I won't be offended if you don't use my name, I usually come up with names like "homely little baby quilt" for my quilts, so I know that I don't have a knack for it.

I love it!! So simple, but so fun and cute. I need to do more SMALL quilts instead of these kingsized whammies!
