Shakespeare in the Park is done

Shakespeare is done. The top at least, and I'm totally loving it. I have a love affair going with Judy Martin patterns. They are so clearly written, and so easy to follow. And she has some unique rotary cutting methods that end up saving fabric. I can't recommend her books and patterns enough. I have been following the blog Amylouwho for a little while now. Every Friday she hosts a Friday Finish. Up till now I haven't had anything that was finished in time to post in this group. I think Shakespeare is a good place to start. If you go over to her site, you'll see other  finishes. The fun part is that they aren't all quilting finishes, but a variety of sewing projects, including the cutest little girl dresses.

  3. The subtleness of the gold stars paired with the boldness if the red stars ... this is truly a lovely piece. I love the feeling of finishing a quilt. I'm finishing an entire quilt tonight, all I have to do is stitch the label to it when I get home from work - when the label's on it, I consider it finished. I'm going to see about posting it on my blog this evening. Warning ... there are 3,370 pieces in the quilt top alone.
