A Finish

January 2009 was the start of our "FINISH ER UP" Challenge and since one of the teacher's in school is due in less than a month or so I figured I better get a move on getting her quilt quilted.

In the past (and present) I've always sent my quilts to a wonderful quilter named Sandi. Sandi was or is a part of the challenge group and I have to tell you, she does some beautiful quilting. I didn't want to send a small baby quilt out to her because I kept telling myself that I have a GRACE FRAME up in the spare bedroom and I NEED to learn to use the darn thing since it's been up there exactly a year......SO....I took the quilt up, pinned her down, made some bobbins, threaded the machine and voile.....I have a quilted baby quilt that only took me an hour!!!

NOW, it's not perfect and the quilting design needs some work but I know that Kerry will LOVE and APPRECIATE it and not even see the flaws that I do.

I picked a moda marbelized red for the binding so since i'm on a roll or as I was told this morning I'm like a "runaway train"this weekend, I'm going to cut the binding and attach that so tonight while I watch TV I have some hand work to do....
Hmmmm....what will I work on next????
