At last. A finished quilt!!

Georgia snuggled up in her new quilt.

I put puppy dog backing on it and you may notice the wee bee motif I stitched..I try to have the bumble bee as out family motto as it everyday does the impossible when it flies : )

Georgia finally has her quilt. Wadded, bound and backed and very warm(She told me this morning). I was getting a bit sick of it, after handstitching, handquilting, and binding it...this is nothing new Im always glad to get a quilt finished, each part seeming more interesting and then more dragging on than the last part. The thing about quilting the thing in winter is the warmth it gives you draped over your legs as I quilt... Now I am starting to make a few sawtooth stars for my Amercian patriotic quilt and will begin quilting a pastel number I did mostly on the machine and then some hand applique that i plan to go on the couch. (Cover up all the wear holes:) )
I find putting the threee pieces together a real trial and Im not sure, Having only ever been self taught that I am doing this correctly... I keep saying that one day I will join a group but I in part scared they will laugh at my techniques!
