Stitching done!



I thought I'd give everyone a few photos of yesterday's work. The stitching part (to my knowledge) is done. I've had my DH down here to scrutinize it with me to see if there was anything I missed in the background, but he didn't see any spots - which is good. He has a great eye and usually sees things right away.

I'll be putting the binding together today. I surprised myself by finding the 'how to' for Amish binding. Sometimes I'm more organized than I think!

The silliest things occur to a person when they've had their nose to a quilt like this for hours on end...one of which was that the deadline for entering a vest in this show is on the 14th - Hey, I could do that (Yeah, right...keep dreamin', Lisa, it's not like there won't be other shows)!

In all honesty I'm looking forward to doing some customer quilts, none of them have this density of stitching! There are a few here to do before we go away for spring break. Something I'm also really looking forward to !

Any chance I'll get to see this up close and personal at MQX?

Hi Vicki!
It'll be there, so will I. Are you going to take classes? Come see me in the Willow Leaf Studio booth. I expect to be spending most of my time there. I'd love to meet you.

This is a very beautiful & well done piece! If you are entering it in a show, I hope it wins!
