Feeling Better and a small project


I'm feeling much better than I did last week this time.
I didn't get a lot done this week but yesterday afternoon I found a small project kind of buried on my sewing counter and since it was a friend's project I thought I better get it done.

One of the girls that works in a different building than me asked me if I could sandwich and quilt a small crib quilt that she'd embroidered. It was really quite easy since the lines for quilting were already drawn on and they were all straight lines so I pinned like crazy and then did the quilting.
I didn't tack down the binding because Marilyn, the owner said she could do that herself. The backing is a cute green and white gingham check and with the leftover fabric I made binding. I'll deliver it off to her tomorrow. I hope she likes it!

Very nice finishing, and wonderful hand stitching by your friend!

the embroidery looks like it must have taken your friend a long time. it's nice of you to do the sandwiching & quilting.

That is really sweet. I'm sure she will be very happy with the work you did on it. I'm glad you are feeling better now, too.
