I finally spent some quality time with my sewing machine over Christmas break and finished the quilting on this quilt. I stuffed it under my ironing board last time I started quilting it, because it wasn't going too well. It's such a large quilt and when I was having problems with it right away, I just decided to let it go for a while. I must have forgotten to put on the walking foot. When I started quilting again last week, it went really well. Maybe I was just more relaxed and happy to have all the Christmas sewing projects out of the way and I was ready to focus on some sewing for me. So, for the next few nights I'll be hand stitching the binding on. It is a part of quilting that I don't mind and I get to stay nice and warm beneath the mounds of fabric. It will be a good finish to start 2011 off with.
Hope you're having a wonderful day!
