Today I finished up the WIP/UFO I've been working on for the past couple months or so, and I love the results!!
I didn't have anything that looked right for the binding, so I broke down and went to buy some. But I did find it on sale, and it cost less then $4, so I'm not too disappointed in myself. I decided it was worth the few dollars to get it finished before I lost motivation for another year or so. =)
I had planned to add some applique around the edges, but as much as I like the result; I don't like the process. And I decided it looks nice the way it is. But if I change my mind, it can always be added.... right? For now I want to get a hanging sleeve on the back, and get it up on the wall!
The quilting isn't perfect, I actually used this as practice at free-motion with the stitch regulator turned off. This was a first, and I am definately going to try it again! I found it worked much better for some things, the stitch regulator seems to act funny when you do smaller intricate designs- but if I don't slow down for them I will make a mess!
And, of course, one of the kids. I actually got them all somewhat posed at once, which is often a challenge!
Ok, once again, I REALLY like this quilt!
It's going above the couch in the living room. Today when I told Breanna that she said "So you're going to replace the ring?" She was referring to a berry wreath I made a few years ago, which does look pretty sad and has many of the berries removed via the kids.
One more..... =)
