Quilt Updates...

I have been working on my quilt project as much as I can.
I have pinned it, and have been machine quilting it. I have used stencils, and did some freehand drawing on it also.
Hopefully during tomorrow nights class I will learn how to make the binding.
This sure is a lot of work! But I know it will be worth it in the end. I am very happy with my lap quilt so far. This will hang in the quilt shop I work at for a little while. Hopefully not too long, then I will take it home!
:)
I had trouble trying to hang this up somewhere to take a picture. When all else fails, use Duct Tape!!! Works like a charm. hee hee ;)
thanks for looking,
Louise
(I know I have yet to remove the chalk marks....it is very late, and I am so tired! I will get to that tomorrow...I also noticed my lines aren't even, but! I am human, I have to keep reminding myself that, and I don't want it to be perfect anyways, quilts are supposed to look handmade right?!) :)

Always And Forever

By Little House Needleworks.
I finished stitching this one up last night. Stayed up till 1am!
I used 28 count white evenweave, Weeks Dye Works Union Blue,
and Anchor Thread #1206 for the heart that was stitched.
Will most likely frame this.
