Plain and Simple Finale

My design wall is a little bare this week.  Our son graduates Magna Cum Laude from North Dakota State University in Mechanical Engineering and it promises to be a busy week! (A momma just has to brag sometimes.)  We 're so very proud of him.

Last week I finished the quilting on the little the Plain and Simple doll quilt.  The pattern was shared by  Cheri.  I have no idea what I was thinking when I quilted the borders with white thread!  It just happened to be in the machine and I completely spaced out and didn't change it.  In the long run it helped me see my work better.  I'm still learning to quilt something other than straight lines with my machine, so this was generally a practice piece.  We just redecorated the kitchen and I think this little quilt might look good as a wall hanging in that room.  The new curtains are red and cream.

Welcome to everyone who visits through the Design Wall Monday link.  I love to read your encouraging comments, and love to see what you're working on as well.  Take a peek at the posts on my Silver Anniversary Quilt.  Stop by again soon!
