All quilted up

Yay! I got to post my pictures directly to blogger and not have to go through Picasa. The problem with Picasa was that it seemed to resize my photos and I know how much quilters enjoy close up of stuff. :)

Anyhow, I'm officially all done with the free-motion quilting for my aunt's quilt. Right on schedule. :)


Here's a close up of one block. I free-handed the hearts. I like how they're all a little bit unique, but give off a feeling of love. :)

Now it's onward to the binding! Mustn't forget to take step-by-step photos - it's so nice when I see quilting methods explained with pictures, that's what I understand the best. And anytime there's a newbie on the Yahoo groups asking how to do bindings, I can just point to them to my page and hope that it adds to their understanding.

Today I woke up with a sore throat. Bleh. You can blame my husband. And he'll blame a student. :P I'm still hopeful that it won't turn into sniffles too. Gotta love the internet - I'm free to interact, post and chat with everybody and nobody's going "eww... I hope I don't get her sore throat..." :)

Hrmm. Start the binding or get some ice cream? Not a hard one... ;)

Great for you for being - right on schedule! Looks super-fab - you did a great job and putting hearts where you did was really sweet!

Cheers!

looks wonderful, Leah! Ice cream hands down, I'm guessing?

My husband has ice cream almost every night and me, rarely but when I got a free liter of root beer and cheap vanilla ice cream you can almost tell where we headed the other night! Root beer floats and a couple weeks back, tiny banana splits.
