Oh my gosh! I thought I would never finish this quilt!!! I did the piecing early this year. Waited until May for a quilting class to become available in order to learn how to quilt. Waited for my walking foot to arrive from my local quilt store from June until Sept. When that didn't happen, I ordered one off the Internet. I finally quilted it about three weeks ago. Then it took two weeks just to find time to do the binding. But it's done and I'm happy with it. And it will make the best Christmas present for a three year old girl.
I decide to do the binding in the purple that the sashing is in. I applied the binding from the back. Turned it to the front and then used a decorative stitch. Well, I used a different one for each side of the quilt. Turned out very nice even if I say so myself.
I've always loved sewing. I remember being about 4 sitting on floor hand stitching doll dresses, while my mother sewed on her sewing machine. I couldn't wait to be big enough to use the sewing machine! Now I work full time and try to sew daily, but other fun stuff gets in the way. You know, like swimming and camping. Sometimes reading or watching movies. Grandkids, BBQ's, walking the dogs. You get the picture.
