Linda Meyers Amish Quilt Show
This pattern almost got tossed in the UFO pile! (AKA trashcan) I started it before I knew much about fabric and it is a huge count! I think at least 24, if not bigger. But it's a very cheap fabric and you can about see right through it! There is a border that goes on the pattern, but I like realistic pictures, so left off the quilted border.
This is the last of my big pictures to show you! I have done quite a few other big projects, but they don't live with me anymore! My grandma has quite a few piece, my mom has plenty, my sister has a great finished project that I need to take my own picture of. She is not a stitcher, and I let her get online and pick a pattern she liked! Imagine my shock and eventual HORROR when I saw my first eight paged computer graphed pattern! When I finished it I swore I'd NEVER do another!
Then my little brother took this great picture and I knew I had to stitch it for him: The Bear! Course I have one more brother that doesn't have much of anything stitched by me! So he's next on the list... I just need to find the perfect pattern!
