Learning from my mistakes ....!

Hum ... When it comes to setting quilting goals, I seem to have a difficult time learning from my mistakes.

I finished the quilt Bobbins, which is from that great book 12-Pack Quilts by Me & My Sister. You can read about the blog entry here.

The quilt has been hanging on my design wall for a couple of weeks. Excuse the messy photo!
I used fabrics from Chestnut Street by Fig Tree & Co - Available from Fibre Junction here.

Below is a close up of the block.
Late Sunday afternoon, I decided that I had enough motivation to machine quilt the top. The goal ... hit the sack once it was all machine quilted.
By ... yawn ... 11:30 p.m. it was completed!

Today's goal, machine sew the binding, making it ready for hand sewing! Another of my favourite part of quilting!

What's quilting with you?

Thank you for stopping by my little corner in cyber space! Catch you later! Cheers!

That is a wonderful quilt and I know the feeling, but lately it seems I am up late, cleaning.
Still trying to figure out how 2 people can make so many messes, Bill blames it on the pets, lol.

That is a great design and the quilting on it looks wonderful. I love the texture that quilting gives a top.

Ahhhh, the ol' late night quilting trick LOL! Very pretty! I love the hand part of binding -- I currently should be working on one too!
