A Quilting first for Me!


I sandwiched my "Tis the Season" quilt and decided to stitch
 in the ditch around the 12 stitcheries first....
I was then going to hand quilt it like in the patttern.......

But instead I top stitched the inner border.....
I thought that looked good so then there was no stopping me.....
I just kept going round and round until I ran out of border......
I also top stitched the individual block borders.....
This is a shot of the back....
You will not get to see it all as it puckered in a few spots....
Oh well....Who sees the back...*Grin*....
This is where I am up to at the moment.....
Waiting on some binding, a label and hanging rod....

I am feeling quite pleased with myself and am glad
that I gave it a go.....I didn't realise what a big job it would be...
I could go a nice shoulder rub at the moment....
Until next time, Happy Stitching
