I finally finished that blue star and plumes piece I started a long time ago. I had made the top, probably hand pieced and hand appliqued in the late 1970s, and I began hand quilting it on July 4 of this year. I decided to finish it by machine quilting using my New Home. I think it turned out pretty well. With every project, I am learning more and more. You can see detail better if you double click on the photo. I still haven't experimented with free motion.
