I received my teal and grey snowball quilt back from the long arm quilter, the first quilt I have ever sent out (and, coincidently, also the first quilt I ever pieced!). It began in January and is finally, finally finished. It is for a dear friend's birthday. She will get it November 17. Stay tuned for the glamour shots!
Truth be told, I decided to try my hand at machine binding again. I tried it on my Sweet Baby quilt as well and was not impressed with my results. Alas, I was equally "menh" about this machine binding. But it is a queen sized quilt and huge and I hate hand stitching the binding, so it will work. I know she will love it, with or without the binding being hand stitched.
I also finished the binding on my mom's Christmas present quilt (still a surprise...shhh!) and it looks great! (Hand stitched, in case you were wondering). This quilt (which still needs a name) will also get a glamour shoot sometime soon.

These look great! If I could get the marking done so I could do the reporting, then I'd make some better progress.ReplyDelete
