I finished quilting my second Burgoyne Surrounded - also pieced in 1992 - on Monday. Yesterday and today I sewed on the binding and the label. This blue and white version is a little bigger than the red one because of the pieced border. I love how the border turned out but I remember it being a BEAR to get all the piecing correct. Both of these were done from an old, old Trudie Hughes book called "Even More Template Free Quiltmaking". I've since given the book away, but I think it was published in the very late 1980's. I quilted this with a Jodi Beamish pantograph called "Waterworld" using a pastel variegated King Tut thread. I love how it turned out!
This morning I also quilted Carolina Crossroads. I have the binding strips cut. I hope to show you another finished quilt tomorrow. Tonight we are spending the evening with Joseph and the kids.
Did you hear me cheering for joy this morning about 7:45 a.m. PDT? According to my weight watchers weigh-in I lost another 5 pounds this past week. That makes for a total of 12.5 pounds - over 25% of my way to goal. I really think I'm going to be able to do this!
