I am so happy to have a quilted and bound quilt to show. Due to my back surgery in September, I have been unable to do much quilting for the past year. Pain both before and after meant that I could work on tops but no actually finish them. But knowing that I am going to visit my grandchildren tomorrow gave me the incentive to give it a try. I have still not used the longarm since moving to this house and I did not want to even think about trying that so did this on a domestic machine.
I am so happy with how it turned out. I thought I would just do some in the ditch stitching and outline the appliqué but once that was done I knew a few details and background filler would bring it to life. Here are a few close ups of some of my favorite blocks.
My quilting is by no means perfect but I am so happy to have a finish and look forward to hanging it on the wall in my granddughter's room. My DIL has been patiently waiting since Sarah's arrival almost 6 months ago!
