SO close, yet so far away

Hi friends, I'm on quilting quest today. You know the quilt I was supposed to finish on January 26th? Well, it's not done yet. I'm determined to make some progress today in spite of a million and one things keeping me from it.

Last week I decided it looked so much better to "hand-quilt" around the flower appliques... it's going to take awhile, but the results will be worth it.  

Sew like the wind!!!!!

  1. The LOVE that goes into quilts- that's what gets me. (I know I'm all PMS-y today but makes me all teary) Looks great so far!

    1. Yup, the love. My thoughts too. All the quilts I have are filled with love from the person who made them and they are all the more precious for it.

  2. I'm sorry. You're HAND QUILTING THE FLOWERS? Oy, woman. I'm going to owe you a million dollars when it's done!

    1. No way! Don't be sorry at all. It just looked so much better hand-quilted -- I wanted to do it that way. I hope you think so too. Don't you even think about owing me anything!! It's taken SO long to finish... I'm sorry for that. But I hope you like it!

  3. You should totally bring it on over and we'll quilt like the wind together! Mine is finally pinned and ready for the quilting. And I'm one of those crazy chicks that does it all by hand because I sincerely and crazily enjoy quilting. That is all. But seriously, anytime you would like company in your quilting ventures, it's what I'm doing every time Ben goes down for a nap. :)
