Scrappy Quilt Finished

Scrappy quilt I made for Heather

I've done it...the quilt for my co-worker is finally done.

I didn't end up doing any fancy quilting...I just machine quilted around each square. I need to practice more before I try any free motion quilting on a real quilt. I would have had to commit harry carry on myself if I had wrecked with this quilt after working on it for so long. I think it turned out pretty good. I could have done a better job on the binding...but it was the first time I've attempted the binding on my own without my mentor's ( 32point5 ) help.

I bought the material I need to add my border to the round robin I am participating in. I also got a quicky lesson on how to do a flying geese border from the quilting store ladies. I hope to do that on Friday so stay tuned, I might have more pictures for you tomorrow night.

Lovely Quilt, I am sure she will love it. I even recognized some of the fabric in it. Maybe you could make some placemats or a table runner that you could practice your free motion on?

In regards to the RR, when exactly is that due for trade off??

Hi 32point5,
I'm not sure there is an official date for the hand off.
I'm working on it today and this weekend, so I hope to have it done soon. I'm doing flying geese. Crazy lady picked out the fabric for me...I think it will look pretty nice when I am done.
