After a day of field hockey (GO, GSE!!) and softball (GO, SMASH!!) we are home and starting dinner! What a beautiful New England day ~ THIS is why we live here! (I do have to admit, there were a few black flies out there cruising around... ARGH!)
The quilt it coming along nicely ~ I finished the machine quilting last night. I have to say I love the ability to do that with my machine! Very cool and very fun! The only down-side is the fact there isn't much room for turning things, but that's the way it goes.
|Machine quilting in process - can you see the pink thread? Fabric on right is the backing.|
|Lots of teal in it, so plenty of bobbins and then some quilting with this, too.|
|Fabric on one end.|
|Next row up from the waves.|
|This is the other end - I LOVE purple and teal!!|
|This is the backing - Thimbleberries Fancy Free.|
|This is the backing, where I've turned it over to start handstitiching |
the binding and a bit of one of the front fabrics too!
Tonight it's all about the binding - I'm off to start stitching! Later, Friends!
