I am loving all of the posts and comments, etc. It is like we are a real group! Keep it up!
Here are a few things I have FINISHED... nothing like being sick to get some "homey" things done! This is a quilt that I made for my daughter-in-law, Maria Mae.
She is expecting twins next month!
I used a Moda line, "Sophie" by Chez Moi. I love the line. I machine quilted it using a technique that I like to call "stitching in the vicinity of the ditch"!
Below is the binding. I tried it for the first time. It is one that Emily Sigler uses and is much better at. But, I'm happy with my first attempt. I love how it makes it's own "piping".
(anybody know how to put 2 pictures next to each other? This is wasted space is driving me crazy!)
|This is last year's FIRST "square". I liked it so much, I kept going, making row after row of zig zags! I made them into a quilt for my grandkids to snuggle under. I "quilted" it with a giant stitch using embroidery floss.|
I'm sorry to post so much. I am just so excited that I actually FINISHED some projects, I wanted to share. Now I don't have so many "tops" in my basket. You know how it is, you have all this fabric... you make some really great "tops"... then they all sit in a basket waiting for finishing. (Thereby moving fabric from one pile to another!) Well, I got some finished! Yippee! (Not that I am glad I was sick. But there is this bright side!)
