After finishing the front and back of my quilt, I wasn't able to even touch it until 2 days ago. My daughter started pre-k, I'm helping my parents out while they remodel their kitchen...life is just busy for so many reasons. I had it in the corner of my kitchen where I would see it everyday. Everytime I looked over there, I was dying to get it finished! Saturday My hubby helped me lay it out and get it ready to baste. While the kids were napping, I basted it, and got started quilting. I LOVED quilting it...when my machine cooperated. It kept skipping several stitches, and at one point the tension went whacko on me. They quilting is SO far from perfect, it isn't even funny, but I feel so accomplished and proud that
I did it!
I did it!
I finished the quilting on Saturday and did the binding yesterday while the kids were napping. Oddly, I really enjoyed doing the hand binding. I am so anxious to buy the rest of the fabric for my daughter's quilt. I have been picking up fabric here and there that I love for hers. Hopefully I can start soon. Life is getting busier though, so it may be a while before I can. :(
I want to say thank you to Care over at Obsessively Stitching for the easy and clear tutorials on making this quilt. The gave me the confidence that I really can do this. She has so many great projects and tutorials over there. Please go check her out!
Today I am thankful for my crazy busy life! I wouldn't change a thing!
