Yes, finally! Big time Happy Dance going on here!! I am thrilled and happy to report that the 30s quilt is ready for binding!! I will always refer to this quilt as "The Great Teacher." This quilt taught me so much through trial and error. It shouldn't have been a difficult quilt to quilt, but I was being the stubborn student and wanting to take the l-o-n-g way. LOL!! There were times when I thought, "There is no way I'm showing this quilt to to anyone again." BUT I couldn't be happier with how it looks and am more than happy to show it off.
I pretty much could have been blindfolded when I quilted the borders because I couldn't see the thread at all on that fabric while I was quilting. No joke.
I tried a new all over design in the center. Kind of a feathery swirl. Everything is freehand. I did mark for spacing on the sashing.
And finally the whole quilt. Well sort of...my photo skills are pathetic. :-)
Scott loved how the borders came out. He was very impressed and loves this quilt now too!
I am loving every second of this quilting journey. Even the little "learning bumps" every now and then.
