I have a finish, or at least that is what I am calling it. I finished sewing the last edge of binding and then a little hand quilting. Much to my chagrin, I found that some of the hand-quilting had been missed and I had to do it myself. I know it is not up to the par of the hand quilting on the rest of the quilt but I did it with love and that has to count for something. (PS - Not a big fan of doing hand quilting but that might have to do with the fact that I've never done that before.) I do love the depth that quilting gives a quilt. Hard to see in the picture but you all know what I mean. 

The back is from the Pure line and I love the words all over the back. They just seem to fit so well. The only thing left is sewing the label on and gentle washing. Since I mainly used a jelly roll, it could not be washed before I started. So, it goes in the wash tomorrow with many Color Grabber slips and a few prayers too. There is a lot of red so I don't think I can do anything while it is in the wash since all my fingers will be crossed too.

Have a happy sewing day!



  1. Looks good, Nan, I know they will love it!
