TGIF!! After a very long week at work, here is my Friday update. First I want to visit Sarah at http://confessionsofafabricaddict.blogspot.com and join in on Friday Whoop Whoop. I worked on several quilts this week.
I started on this quilt, I making it for a man I have worked with for almost 20 years and he is retiring at the end of April. He has been a teacher, a listener, a sounding board and mostly he has been a friend. I will miss him dearly when he leaves, he has helped me through the most difficult days.
What a terrible picture! I will make sure the next picture is a whole lot better.
I loaded Little Sprout on the frame last night and began quilting. This is only the third quilt that I have quilted on my new frame. The second one I'll show in a bit.
I decided to use loopie loops on the background around the stems and leaves.
Now staying with Friday Whoop Whoop and joining Susan over at http://www.blackberrycreek.typepad.com for UFO's updates.
I finished quilting and binding the quilt for my family room. Mark another one off my UFO list. I did cheat a little, I machine stitched the binding, instead of handing sewing, for a couple of reasons. First, even though I love black, I found out it's not real easy to quilt, hard to see stitching. Next it will used in our family room and my DH and DS are very hard on binding, they pull and drag and throw it round and it doesn't take long for all of my little hand stitches to break.
Because it is black you can't see it (machine stitching) anyway. I was a little disappointed in this quilt but DH likes it so I guess it's ok.
Well, that's my week, what about you?
