Barn Raising done!
Yay!! Got this all quilted today and the binding is machine stitched on. I just stitched in the ditch around all the diamonds on point and along the borders. It really quilted up very quickly. It ends up at 78"x78". This was a top I made during Marge's Super Stash Bowl mystery. Marge runs the Mysteries for Relay site for cancer. I have done a few of her mysteries and I am never disappointed with them. Speaking of which, I need to get back over there and resign on to the list! Won't you join me?? I am counting this as done as I will handsew the back of the binding down tonight while watching a movie with the family. Dan is home right now, so can't work on it until he is gone.
Isn't it amazing how a finish motivates you?? Now with this done, I can't wait to jump into another. I am planning on hand quilting my Giant New York Sunflower top, so I think I will baste that all up next so I have something to work on during tv time or sitting outside time. Being prepared like that is a HUGE part of me getting things done. I will also grab another top and get that pinned and maybe start quilting it. Not sure yet. I am in the mood for piecing, so maybe I will finish putting together one of the tops. Haha..who knows what comes next??!!
Hmm..now to go see if I have any more cd's of bands whose name starts with F......
