A few final finishes of 2017

Thanks to my good friend Jan, I have two more finishes to share!
Jan framed this piece for me!!! I am so thrilled!
This was truly a work of heart - it took 18 months on and off 
and has many memories stitched into it along with prayers.

I'm sorry to say that it is not yet hanging on my wall. It measures almost 2 feet by 3 feet and I haven't found just the right spot for it yet...

I love the frame! It is made by Yellow Creek Quilt Designs, who also designed and kitted the quilt. It is made of old barn wood and I love the age and history of the wood!

Jan also finished this beautiful piece for me!
It was definitely beyond my hand stitching skills. 
Thank you ever so much Jan for your beautiful finishing!

I love the subtle colors of this piece.
Of course the dogs morphed into dachshunds as they tend to do on my stitches :)

I have lots of finishes of my Mom's to share too. 
I think I will break them up into some shorter posts, too.

You greatly rejoice in this, even though you have to suffer various kinds of trials for a little while, so that your genuine faith, which is more valuable than gold that perishes when tested by fire, may result in praise, glory, and honor when Jesus, the Messiah, is revealed.
~1 Peter 1:6-7

Blessings, Patti

Your hexagons! I'm going to a retreat in a few weeks, and I hope to work on the same project. My hexies are 3/8". Crazy!

Hi Patti...I have the same pattern for the hexies, started earlier last year and many more to go. The frame is absolutely fitting for the quilt.
