My three-day quilting retreat at home has been a smashing success. And, boy-howdy, did I accomplish a lot. My main aim was to finish the winter wall hanging for my daughter's office and I did that early this afternoon.
As I mentioned, it took me all day yesterday to do the machine quilting on it (which I am very happy with) so all I had to do today was the binding and hanging sleeve.
This is a close-up of the left border and part of the center of the piece.
Above is the top portion. Sure wish the machine quilting would show up better in the pictures.
The appliqued "Welcome" lettering across the bottom.
And the whole wall hanging completely finished and ready to be delivered.
I used the remainder of the day today to work on a couple of quilted pot holders that I wanted to make as a thank you for someone who did something very nice for me. I have to hand stitch the binding on them tomorrow and they will be all set to go. I'll post a picture or two of them before sending them off.
The one single problem with my three-day quilting marathon at home was that now I want to do it again . . . soon!
