Huge Courthouse Steps

 Wishing the weather was like this.  It's been raining for the last four days so snuggly hand quilting is greatly appreciated!
 Used Anna Griffin's Honoka...
 ....burgundys up two sides and greys on the other two for a huge Courthouse Steps block.
 Leftovers round the edges.  Boy I miss that sunshine!
 Size 8 perle cotton chunkiness.  The quilting goes so fast with big thread and big needle!
 This is earmarked for a special friend's daughter who is buying her first home. 
 Guess I need to make a special label!:)
Happy December 1st!:)



  1. That courthouse steps is a corker! And what a fabulous setting for your photos!

  2. So pretty! You are the best! :)

  3. Love your chunky quilting! I see that it looks like you stitched down the binding the same way?? Did you sew binding to the back, then hand stitch to the front? I have been sewing binding to the back and then top stitching by machine on the front - love doing binding all by machine. But this perle cotton looks so good! Pretty quilt Dee!
