somewhat. Not 100% but good. I am keeping the good thoughts that the upswing continues.
So lets see what shall I blog about. I have nothing new for the Tour De Fleece. I want to spin but sitting is still to painful. I am hoping tomorrow. So how about my first quilt!!
I showed the top finished last year sometime
Now it has a back, binding and it is quilted. Free hand on my machine no less!! Yes people I just dive right in!! It was pretty easy and now that I have done it I hear it is hard. Sometimes it is good to just go for it and ignore what people say.
The back is just plain black cotton and the binding is black corduroy I had gotten on a scrap bundle. Yeah I know not fancy but..
the quilting shows up great on the back and I love how it looks and in the end that what matters =) It is a light weight quilt, throw size that has been at home on my side of the couch for the last few months. I love it very much and there is a sentimental-ness to it. I bought the fabric when I was visiting my father and the sunflowers also remind me of my uncle. I miss them both. It is funny how something like a quilt connects to the past and memories.
