Wow has today been a good day. I completed my block early, and I finished a quilt that has been a UFO for a long time! :)
Everyday it is the same thing, I flip the calendar, look at the block, and then at some point head to the sewing room to choose fabrics, cut, and sew. You can probably tell I was in a REALLY good mood today. We had an unseasonably warm and sunny day today, and I must have really been in a sunny mood. When I finished this block it almost startled me to realize just how bright it was. But you know, I really like it. My son's favorite color is yellow, and I guess yellow is quickly becoming a color I love too! This is block 33 of 366, is a 14-inch block, and is called Hand of Friendship.
I pieced this wall hanging over a year ago, and I was so worried about quilting it that it just sat waiting to be worked on. I started quilting it last night and almost finished it, but didn't quite make it. I used my new walking foot that makes stitching in the ditch a dream. You don't watch the needle, you watch the foot, and it makes it so easy to quilt. I then did some stippling on the borders, put the binding on, and it is ready to hang. What a good feeling. I think I realized today just what a good feeling it is to have it completely finished...and that is a good thing because Judy drew number 1 this month which is...
my Honey Bee quilt. It just needs quilting and binding too, and I'm actually excited to get working on it. Have a wonderful evening and Happy Stitching!! --Kristen
