I am so excited. I took the Wedding Quilt off the frame this week-end! I'm already sewing the binding and then its just washing the quilt. I have worked on this for five months: 3 months on the hand applique and 2 months quilting it. I took a break for a few weeks around the wedding but otherwise I have been working on it steadily. It is very beautiful. I may dislocate my shoulder from patting myself on the back. I'll post pictures this week-end.
Now I can get back in my sewing room :) Well, I have been sneaking off to my sewing machine to work on the scrap quilt I mentioned. It is made of 9-patch and Roman Road blocks, set on point. I love both 9-patch and 4-patch set on point and use them alot. The border was sewn with the blocks into rows-what look like setting triangles around the 9-patch are really half-square triangle squares -half light/half dark blue. This made it a really fast quilt top to sew together. I'm offering it as a class this fall, hope people sign up, I would like to teach this quilt and since I always sew with the class, I'll get a second one. Maybe I'll make it pink!
