That was not so hard...



Do you recall that Mystery Summer Quilt Helen from Hugs n Kisses organised way back in um January (cough cough) last year? I have avoided quilting this quilt. Quite frankly I could not decide how I wanted to quilt it - but I WANTED to seriously quilt it using patterns and free motion. It was kinda like a challenge for me.

I had every excuse under the sun not to do it and let it sit on my desk pestering me loudly. Finally, now I can do things when the little man is asleep and the market stall makings are not demanding time. Hurrah. I went solidly for about three hours last night. Have LOTS more to do (see I said seriously quilt!).

It is SO NICE to finally tackle my own stuff and things that I really wanted to do.

Good work, Sarah! Doesn't it feel good to finish off a project you have been dreading to do. (hey, we all have them)

Yah, time for you again Sarah, I am thrilled to bits to hear it. When you finish just yell out and I will send you my pile waiting for the serious quilting in this household-should keep you buys for another year or so......
big hugs

I'm really looking forward to seeing it... even just a peak... curious about what sort of quilting you've got going. Come on, just a peak?

Thanks for your recent quilting tips too, they are much appreciated.
