Doing The Happy Dance

That's Right

Happy Dance

I can say with such delight I am finally finished quilting on the 30's Sampler.

These picture are from last summer and most of the basting stitches were in.  I had this one basted on a large quilting machine so that is why there are all those straight line.

I quilted a quarter inch from the seams on 99% of the quilt. The only time I quilted closer was when I quilted around an appliqued piece.

So today I am going to make a binding and I'm thinking of using all 30's solids, in all the colors I have.

Attach that down while watching the Superbowl (love the commercials) 

Boy after 5 years, that's how long it's been since I started quilting on this and I believe this is the first post written  about quilting on this back in Dec. 2012. And at that time I said I started it the year before.

If I happen to get the binding on and have time before the game, I'll try to finish the flying pigs baby quilt top. That one is going to be a quilt to practice machine quilting on.

Till later,

  1. Congratulations on your stunning finish!

  2. Wow, five years to quilt. I admire your determination and it is a great finish

  3. Oh what a great outcome. I am not a great lover of samplers but this layout is awesome. Ok maybe it's those old samplers that are blocks surrounded by sashing. Maybe it's just the sashing! LOL I am looking forward to doing a red and white quilt so that I can just stitch a quarter inch away from seams. Sounds so wonderful!

  4. Wow great quilt! Have fun with the binding this afternoon.

  5. Depression era prints are always charming as is your quilt. Congrats on sticking with a 5-year project.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
