Finally! Another finished quilt!

I will be back tomorrow with a report on our trip - including pictures. I have time tonight for just a short post. I'm happy to report that I have finally quilted, bound and labeled another flimsy! I've not had a finish since March, thanks to the knee problems I had. This last week the remaining knee pain has vanished, so today I quilted the flimsy I loaded last week. I used this as a practice piece for freehand feathers - among other things - so the quilting doesn't stand up to a close examination. That's OK - the only way to get better is to practice. In the meantime, done is better than perfect! The marking pencil still needs washing out - I'll do that tomorrow.

It looks great! I gave up on perfection when we started having kids - it takes too much time! I have more fun too - nice finish!

Happy Belated Anniversary, Patti! I love spending time at the coast. Your camping quilts look wonderful and I bet your free hand feathers are perfect because everything you do is immaculate and precise.

Beautifully done Patti. I made that pattern for my daughter's wedding quilt all in soft blue, tan and white. I had it quilted with a shell motif to celebrate the young couple's love of the ocean.
