Finished!

I finished my friend Kathi's quilt. I got a little carried away and put a bit more quilting on it that she probably intended me to, but that will be fine with her. I tried sewing flower tendrils but they looked stupid - I guess I'll have to look more closely at what they actually look like! I really like how it turned out. I sure hope she'll be pleased. My back, hands and feet sure hurt - this took half of yesterday and most of today to do. Hopefully I'll start to get faster at this one of these days.

I also finished the work for work that I brought home to do this weekend - at least everything that I'm going to do tonight. I have one more thing to create - a "contest" to provide and incentive to read the other documents before Thursday. I'll do that as soon as I get to work tomorrow.

Still can't work on my own things yet - I have to baste my friend Lanny's quilt for hand quilting. Probably won't get to that until next weekend. I guess I've got another customer quilt coming in also. Just when I think I can do something of my own . . . Murphy's Law I guess!

your friend made a gorgeous quilt and your quilting enhances it well. Hope some time opens up soon and you can get back to your own projects--even if it is just for a few hours.

The posies are so pretty, and I like the fabric used for the sashings and border. I have a difficult time using florals!

The quilting looks impressive - I've just gotten a new machine and can't wait to try some freehand quilting on it.

Gorgeous quilt, gorgeous quilting!

The quilt looks wonderful Patti, and I certainly can believe you would hurt(a lot!) after all that quilting. Hope it feels better soon, and that life slows down a bit, Hugs, Finn
