Friday night I quilted. I snag any opportunity I can to get a little bit done! I worked more on my project yesterday and finished the quilt top this afternoon. Now it must be set aside until I get a good Hobby Lobby coupon and get some more batting.
Here is what I finished.
My mother-in-law made these sunbonnet baby squares for me for my birthday last year (or was it Christmas?) . She has a super duper embroidery machine and is a whiz on it! She embroidered each picture on a different white, actually white on white fabric. I had begun to work just a little bit on framing each of them in a selection of reds from my stash. On Friday I cut the rest of my red strips and that evening I finished bordering each picture. Yesterday I managed to so all my squares together. Today I cut the white fabrics to make the outside border and attached all the sides. So now the quilt top is done and I will work on something else until I can finish it. I know I have a red in my leftovers that I can use for the binding and I think I will find a white on white fabric for the backing - hopefully something inexpensive.
I am so pleased with how it turned out. Another fun one to enjoy! And thanks to Brian's mom for making me such a wonderful birthday gift. It may even be finished just in time for my next birthday!
I hope your Monday is beautifully peaceful,
