Ready to Quilt!


Well, Im off to the sewing room to quilt this. FINALLY! I havent decided exactly what Im doing yet... kind of decide as I go along. I think there will be lots of stipple since this is such a small quilt and not a lot of quilting area. I've asked the opinion of DH and DD1 on the binding. They want the aqua floral that is in the center square so thats what it'll be (unless I go for the gold check last minute). I dont want the binding to stand out too much... need it to sink into the background.

Hopefully, this will be finished tonight, it's due tomorrow! I saw some of the quilts today at the lqs and there's lots of competition out there... lots of wonderful quilts! This has been a lot of fun... would be wonderful to win but either way I have a nice quilt (or DD1 does). :)
