It's A Sister Thing - part 3!

Yes, this is the last installment in my "It's A Sister Thing" reveal.  I told you there were a LOT of photos.  I did loose some of the photos, so there isn't a picture of all of the other goodies I sent to Jeanie.  You can go to her blog post here to see her photos.  While you are there, take a look around.  She does fantastic work!

I found these ladies in my stash, and thought they were so appropriate for an avid sewer/quilter.  I had a lot of fun with them.  Something like this is a great way to practice your FMQ.

 Look at these faces, you simply have to smile!  I first chose the coordinating fabric for the sashing.
 Then the lay out and then the border fabric. 
 I outline quilted each diva, then meander quilted the inside of each square.
I quilted in the ditch around the sashing.
 And straight line quilted on the outside border.  I sewed the binding on by machine...
 ...added a label...
...and she was ready to go!  Yes, this is the last installment of my "It's A Sister Thing" reveal.  I want to thank Michelle for allowing me to participate and for giving me Jeanie as a partner.

I've enjoyed seeing the "before" process but I'm REALLY enjoying the "after" projects that are happily residing in my sewing room! Thanks again for the great gifts... I'm truly blessed!

OMG I just love it! And you've given me the perfect idea on how to quilt my wallhanging of the similar gals. I'm glad that you enjoyed the swap and hope to see your name on one of my swap lists in the future.
