Another quilt quilted and on to the cottages!

I got my sister's quilt finished this morning. It's a biggie at 95" x 112". I like this pattern too, even though I just realized the quilt is upside down in the pix. I had it draped over the quilt frame. Well, you get the idea.


It's a very pretty quilt, I will have to take a pic of her and the quilt when I give it back to her. I didn't have anyone to hold it up so I could take a picture of the whole thing.

Tuesday I got the new Beginning Quilting quilt tied and the binding sewn on the front. So now I just need to hand sew it down to the back. Sometimes I sew both sides by machine, but I teach them the traditional way, so have to finish the way I teach it. (heavy sighing....)

I also got the binding sewn to the front of the memory quilt so it needs the same thing...(more heavy sighing....lol). I need to take a couple of good pix of it too, as I haven't yet. Glad I don't have to bind my sister's quilt!

Now to get those cottages finished. I am behind on reading blogs too, so might have to find some time to do that also! I forgot to put that on the list the other day!

You did a great job on the quilting. I love the colors of the quilt also. Binding by hand YUK I quit doing that along time ago but I understand that that is the way you teach that's how you have to do it.

I love the quilt but, I am glad I do not have to bind it. Binding is not my favorite thing.

Wonderful quilting and I love the pattern! I love how the quilts look just draped over the machine like you have that one. Love it!

You are so talented... I envy your ability to quilt like that! You must have the big machine that does that... I have only seen one once...when my first quilt was done on the big machine.
I'm totally ignorant on how you do it!!!
