My Book Came!!!

I am so excited about starting this stitch along.   My book came and I am getting ready to prepare my first couple of backgrounds.     I am new to this group, but I love redwork, and blue work and hand embroidery in general.
I wanted to share my latest stitchery.   I am quilting this one for my grandson's birthday, but I did each of the flying machines in a different color blue and used various blues in the blocks.   I am very pleased with the way it turned out.






Thanks for welcoming me to this group.

Can't email from my home computer. But wanted to answer your questions. My quilting frame is a mid arm or domestic quilting frame. It has a Pfaff Hobby Grand quilter on it and I love it. I am not very good but I am getting better and I can quilt my own larger quilts without struggling.

I did not draw the flying machines. I got them from various places on the internet, in coloring books, but the quilt design is mine.

I can't wait to get to know all of you on this new stitchery.

That's a fantastic quilt. My DH is a pilot. Is it from a pattern? I wonder if he'd like his own plane quilt :-)
