The quilting pattern is Ginger Star by Apricot Moon. It is one of several "Ginger" patterns available. I like them all -- flower, heart, snap. I didn't get Ginger Squeeter! (see below.) Thread is white So Fine on top and bobbin. I'm not sure what batting was given to me. One of the reasons I like this design in all of it's variations is it is straight across the top. I don't have to fill in partial rows.
Once again I was able to complete at least something on all my goals last week. Both the hand quilting and Jamestown Landing are long term projects. I'm now quilting the borders of my Civil War quilt. So the end is in sight on that one! Maybe in two weeks or so I'll be putting the binding on. The secret project has been put on the back burner. I don't need to finish it right now.

I'll be linking up with my regular parties: Oh Scrap, Main Crush Monday, and Moving it Forward. (Monday Making is on a hiatus. Watch for her return to blogging next week or the week after.)
I'll be back tomorrow to activate all the links once everyone has posted their blogs on Monday. I think Main Crush Monday isn't being posted this week. I'm adding Design Wall Monday. I've hesitated to link because she specializes in small quilts and doll quilts. I decided to give it a try and see what happens. Take some time to look over at least some of these links.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
